The refund policy was confusing, the floors were just caked in dirt, and the entire time we were there the place smelled rather humid. The bedsheets also were unwashed.

2/10 Poor

This property is located in convenient location, and surrounding also very good. There are lots of restaurants and dining options just in walkable distance. However, it is not well maintained or cleaned. The sheets are specially infected, I think, because, after within hours of coming out of our stay from this hotel, my little kid has swollen red rashes all over his body. We have stayed in other hotels also but never had such issues. My kid does not have any such allergic disease before staying in this hotel but i think, we were given uncleaned sheets in bed which made his sensitive skin react quickly. I also caught some pores in my body but not as severe as him. I have contacted Expedia complaining this stuff as well. We see 1-2 insects also in the wall. We checked in very late night after whole day driving and we were too tired to complain and move around. In the morning, we dropped the key and had to check out quicker for our next stop. Since our schedule was tight and can not delay, we did not find enough time to report this at that time. Also the rashes and pores came out after 2-3 hours of coming out of the hotel so except uncleanliness, we did not have much complain during check out. But when severe health issues happened with my kid, I eel it is necessary to report it. I have taken the screenshot as well.
