Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The rooms were more rustic than we expected. Our door did not latch when closed. There were dead flys all over in the bathroom and on the window sills. No hot water in the shower!!! Person at front desk was not very friendly. Could not find a security guard or anyone in the middle of the night when we had an emergency !!!!
