Everything was dirty and run-down. The door to my room was wonky on the hinges, had to shove it open and closed. The mattress had broken springs. Toilet and facial tissue provided was the very cheapest quality. The walls looked like they had boogers on them. The mini-fridge didn't fit properly in the space provided. The dining room was closed off, no continental breakfast, only small cups of coffee. At 3am, a VERY LOUD group of Arabic speaking guests arrived in the hallway outside my door. Other than that, it was awesome!
