4/10 Fair

I stayed at this hotel a few years ago and it was clean and good. This time got a room on the first floor, heavy fragrance in the room, guess it was the bathroom after we unplugged the air freshener. The shower was all broken , mold behind the shower glass. We woke up at night feeling breathless guess was the mold. the split air conditioner was super noisy. Property doe not seem to be maintained. Run down

2/10 Poor

It’s was a nightmare. The hotel rooms are full of roaches scrolling the walls, in the fridge and the bathroom. The front desk agent changed my room for another one when entered the room it as a strong smell he ended up open the windows. We went out for 2 hours, the smell was a little better when we returned. When we wake up in the morning we found 3 big roaches in the bathroom.
