  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The whole room smelled like old musty room. The headboard was broken and leaning to the left. I asked if anything could be done about the smell, which was very prevalent, the front desk told me I could go down and pick up a box of baking soda and sprinkle it in the room.
