I booked this place because it had a pool and a good looking breakfast. When we got here the pool is closed and breakfast has been cancelled. Should have stated that on the website. The toilet is filthy, there's stains all over the couch and it looks like someone threw up on the wall. Don't think its ever been cleaned.

We checked into our room, and after unpacking, found the bathroom was invested with ants. We were moved to another room, on a different floor, where we checked the room over prior to unpacking. We crawled into bed, but we were not alone, the bed had ants in it! We demanded a refund (haven’t received it yet) and left for another hotel.

The customer service over the phone was pleasant, the place is filthy inside. I literally had to wipe surfaces clean with wipes I brought from home and there is black mold all inside the bathroom. Yuck. The sink had dried up toothpaste and grime all over the faucet that came off when I cleaned with wipes. The walls have gross stuff all over them in the bathroom and the bedskirt on the bed had Lord only knows what all over it. The room reeks of smoke as well. Just yuck....

The location was ideal. The staff was great. The breakfast was yummy and plentiful. The smoking guests weren't the best; they didn't smoke in their rooms, but they smoked outside their rooms and in the parking lot causing smoke to drift into the rooms.
