Pubic hairs in the bathroom
It was so terrible the door was kind of broken and had lock rigged on it did not feel safe at all then I go to the bathroom and there are someone's pubic hairs on the toilet, floor and bathtub you could see stains on every piece of furniture in there. the curtains didn't even cover the whole windows so people could look in at you overall a terrible experience we never even unpacked we went and canceled the reservation and instead of canceling it the receptionist charge my card a second time never again
