The room was very damp and musty smelling when we first walked in. The shower drain didn’t stay up so we had to shove a washcloth under it to drain when we showered. The bathroom door wouldn’t close and the main bolt wouldn’t completely lock. Overall not a great place to stay but I did at least have a bed to sleep in.
