Latest Review

" We showed up 1 hour early for checkin, and were told there was no restroom we could use there and would have to go to the grocery store. We booked a 2 person room with our own bathroom... which was the tiniest room ever. There was trash on the floor in our room from the ppl before us. The shower had mold, hairs that weren't ours, and the drain was clogged so water pooled up immediately after running the water for the shower. There is no common space, so the only wifi is in the tiny reception. "
