2/10 Poor

Dont go!
Terrible stay. The floors were so greasy my shoes were sliding around the floor. They obviously just went over it with a mop and spread the dirt around. I had to clean parts myself. I laid towels down so my feet didnt touch the floor. It was gross. Even their repairs to the room were cheap and un professional and looked bad. I went to the front desk twice and no one was there to help me. When i checked out they heard me come in and let me sit in the make shift lobby they have until i had to ask them if anyone was goin to help me, while they proceeded to talk. I wasnt happy with this place at all!
