"Horrible"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I had no TV remote for the whole stay and no towels on the first night. There was a dead cockroach in the toilet and I was joined in the shower with a living one. The carpet was very sticky and my white socks were not white after I walked on the carpet. I had to wear slids the intire visit. The toilet whistles when it flushed.I asked for a queen bed, non smoking room and I received a full bed smoking room instead. I went to the office the next day to get towels and I asked why I was put in that room when I asked for the total opposite and the manager told me that I got that room because I booked the room online and I should have called the hotel to confirm. I told him that I did call the hotel 2xs to confirm and I was told everything was good. The people in the office did not care that the room they gave me was in such horrible condition. I suggest that the hotel calls the people they are not able to put in a room they requested so they can make other arrangements.. worst hotel I ever stayed at.
