Latest Review

" Didn't like it here one bit. The whole place was so weird and it seemed like the staff were sneaking around you, constantly whispering amongst themselves and they were not friendly at all. People below us not only had random workers enter their rooms without knocking, but at about 1am they opened the curtain to find a man sliding their window open from the outside to get inside their room! felt like you were constantly being watched 24/7. Showers dreadful. Vibe was not nice! So so glad to leave! "
