"Not what I was expecting."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Smelled of mold and very humid. The toilet paper holder was dangling off the wall. A little confusing on where to go. Staff were friendly but the building just felt very questionable and unkept.

"Smelly Room"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The room presented as reasonably clean (although my feet turned black when I walked barefoot on the floor made sure to wear flip flops once I realized). There was a terrible odor however. Housekeeping came and poured vinegar down the drain and gave me air freshener to help. The odor never fully dissipated. The air conditioner leaked all over the desk area ruining my papers and some personal items. Had to keep a towel there to absorb the leak. There were no other available rooms. The front desk was helpful and said they would contact the third party booking agency to arrange for a partial refund. The bed was very comfortable and parking was great. The pool was lovely and the location very nice. Was there for my niece's wedding. Not sure if I would stay there again.
