2/10 Poor

Nothing from the first minute it was a grief. The front desk was very mean. I have videos of his ugly behavior . I showed him Expedia confirmation number but he was screaming and saying that we don't work with Expedia for two years , I asked to talk to the management and when he called his manager his manager was also ugly and I could hear him on the phone screaming so he did not want to talk to me and hang up on the front desk guy. I asked them to give letter sating that they don't work with Expedia so I can get my money back but they refused. The only option was either I leave to find another hotel or I pay cash because they refused to take credit card. Since I was tiered and not familiar with area I had to pay cash and I had a receipt with video showing that I got charged twice , one by Expedia and another by the hotel. The room was not the room that I was chosen when I reserved instead they gave me a room with two twin bed! Bathroom was dirty. Breakfast was horrible and treatment were very very unprofessional by the service staff where there was only two. I did not eat because I could not trust that the food from it is look seems stored somewhere in the heat for days! Security zero. Anyone can come into the hotel without anyone asking question. I was very worried for may money where I had to carry what I had everywhere I go during these two unpleasant days that I stayed there. Expedia should not have listed this hotel . I called Expedia and selected option callback but!

4/10 Fair

WE DID NOT ENJOY OUR TIME AT ALL. We changed the room several times, the carpets were very dirty and the toilet was not clean. In another room the aircondition was not working and it had an awful smell because of smoking. The Deluxe room is not worth the money. It was not even clean. The staff was very rude to me and my wife, we were shouted at and laughed at because our complaints. The breakfast was OK, nothing to complain about. The Manager of the Hotel is kind too. He takes your complaining serious and give you a new room. In Front of him the staff is kind without hin very rude. The time in the hotel was awful and I can not recommend it at all!
