As soon as we pulled into the parking lot we saw a gathering of young people leaning on cars, smoking and drinking in the lot. Should have turned around. Checking in was ok until we got to the room. We opened the door and immediately was hit with the smell of cigarette smoke trying to be covered by cleaning chemicals. We asked for a new room. They gave us one that had no smoke smell but very strong chemical smell. On the way to the new room we walked down the hall through more smoke smell and not just cigarettes, if you know what I mean. We needed extra pillows because there were 4 of us and they only gave us 2. We went to get more from the desk and they said they were out so they suggested we use a comforter under our heads. After a restless night we went down for coffee and there were no cups to use. At this point we just wanted out. Run away fast from this hotel.
