It was awful they used a dirty rug to cover up the dilapidated laminate floor, it needs replacing not covering it up . The wash basin was clogged and would not drain properly. I removed a toothbrush cover that was stuck in the drain pipe, to get it to drain. The TV remote didn’t work half the time. Only two small bath towels and no coffee maker!! Don’t they know that we as travelers expect and want to have coffee in our room as we get ready. I don’t recommend anyone staying at this dive, I won’t stay there again!!!!

Pool was drained. The room was beat up and showing its age. Little maintenance upkeep. No standard coffee machine but there's a microwave? For the cost of the room you would think there was a coffee machine.
