Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, amenities
Our room smelled horrible, almost like mold and urine. The dishwasher was on with standing water in it and it beeped every 30 seconds. We were unable to turn it off. The front desk person said "ok.. we will check it." You have to park in a neighborhood several blocks away and move your car by 10am so it does get towed away. Then pay a meter to park.
