Guest Recommendations
"Room key didn't work. Had to have someone from staff open the door whenever it was locked. Two left-over, used wash cloths were hanging on the shower rod. No glasses in room. Luckily, we arrived near midnight and left about 6 a.m. If we'd known what a dump the place was, we'd have written off the reservation and stayed somewhere else."
