Horrible for the price

Location: There was a marathon in Monterey so had to stay in Salinas which was out of the way in the first place and the price was so not worth it because it w
There was about a 2" gap under door that any animal could walk in and any human could look in. Very creepy. The tub was dripping and kept me up all night. The included breakfast was basically anything with high fruitcose corn syrup and not much else. Total rip off.
