ERANDI, us1 night trip
Very Good 8.0
We had 2 rooms. One room was very clean, while the other was visibly dirty upon check-in. Unfortunately we did not check in until after midnight, so we did not mention it to the front desk until that morning. When we came back later that night, the room still hadn't been cleaned.

Wrong location
I was sure I booked at City Express Suites, but when I got there, they said I was at the wrong location. THe picture on this window shows I book 1/18 - 1/24, I needed 1/19 - 1/25.
