Location is amazing but the hotel feels old.

Hotel California, Florence
I waw given bug spray by the front desk when I told them there were bugs in my room. The A/C didn't work. No attempt to correct it, or move my room. Please stay away. Wifi doesn't work. At all. I compare this hotel to a motel 6 in the U.S. please do yourself a favor and stay away from this hotel. Breakfast is horrible. Customer service was horrendous. They threatened to call the police if we didn't keep quiet abotu the bug problem. In fact, we were given, bug spray to kill the bugs in the room. Toilets, don't flush, and no working drain in the shower.

Less than 1 star
Rude staff, unsecure room, poor tv, intermittent power, dish cloth as bath towel. Stay somewhere else.

Dead body smell hotel
They said wifi available not true, you have to pay for some spotty service which is not worth the cost. Hotel smells like a dead body when you walk through the halls. Horrible advertisement of a 4 star. Don't go to this hotel
