"Very disappointed in our room."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
We checked in with two other friends. We asked for rooms side by side. .. This did not happen even though the room next to our friends was vacant. We were only there one night. We got room 133. .No one should have this room. So disappointing. No lamps just some severe overhead lighting. Water on the carpet by the fridge. Very depressing room. Our friends room had lamps and the room next to us had lamps. .very strange. It's a small but important thing.!
