Travelled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Room was so small you could barely move around. One chair in the room. You could see light all around the room door. No extra pillows on the bed. You could smell cigarette smoke in the bathroom in a non smoking room. To get to parking on the back of the building the road was treacherous. For 119.00 plus taxes I would sleep in my vehicle before i stay there again.
