    Poor2.0
    How could this possibility be a 3 star hotel ?!
    Check in was ok even though they couldn't accommodate a walk in shower. Room was beyond filthy. Headboard had dust so thick it piled up , baseboard areas and around fridge even more so. Actual dust bunnys. The wall by the bathroom had a chunk out of it. One bed was fallen apart. Worst of all was the human sex fluid running down the side of the bed and on the bed skirt. I took pics of all, then requested a new room. The new room was at best marginally cleaner. We needed a clean room because my daughter was having cancer surgery the following morning. I didn't expect this from a nearly $200 room. Also the pool was cloudy and smelled so bad that the first thing I smelled walking through the front door was a uncomfortably high level of chlorine. We really should have just left. The Hilton Gardens across the street where we usually stay was booked solid or we would have. This is at best a $50 hotel. Gross. I hope I am allowed to post pictures.
