We arrived to a boiling hot lobby. The person that checked us in was incredibly rude. The first room we were assigned to had no air, in fact, the thermostat knob was broken off. So we called downstairs and asked for a different room. The same person came up, didn't even acknowledge us, but flew open another door and said this one works. It was a very creepy environment. This is the second hotel I have reserved from Travelocity that was terrible.

Housekeeping did not come to clean room or restock soap over my entire 4-day stay. Despite repeatedly asking for their assistance at the front desk.
