Travelled with partner
Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Cleanliness
First room we booked wasn’t in a good condition even though they claimed the rooms were newly renovated. The room had blood in the ceiling and bed, you were able to move the toilet around and the toilet had puke (?) left on the outside. Not to mention the door that looked like it got kicked in at one point. Didn’t feel safe at all so we decided to ask to switch rooms. Lady at the front desk was super nice and gave us a new room which was clean and felt safer
