Don't think I would stay here again.

The bed was so hard I feel like I was bruised. Construction on the building and traffic going by woke me up very early daily except Saturday. The sound on the TV quit after 2 days & it was not replaced. Owner told other guests about extra personal items but not me. I had to wash my own towels and empty my own trash. Was offered a card to use for transit but never used it. Just walked around town. Was happy Starbucks was close because I could not access the wi-fi in hotel.

There was literally fecal matter on the bathroom door and floor. The shower was installed with the slope facing away from the drain. And by the smell of things ever person had urinated in the shower. The ammonia smell was almost collapsing .
