This is the rudest staff I have ever seen in my life. This hotel has NO heat, and NO blanket (yes, not a single blanket - just a sheet on the bed). It was 41 degrees. I the hotel manager told me that they do not have heat and no blanket, and that there is nothing they can do. This is unacceptable. I left that hotel and expect a full refund. The hotel is not clean (I wonder if they changed my sheet), and there are a lot of people who seem to live at the hotel, I did not feel safe (people were loud on the parking lot, gathering right next to my car).
