“I am not sure there ARE any good rooms here.”
  • We had 2 towels for a room that sleeps 5. Both were stained. Gross.
  • Flooring is coming apart and you can see the mold around the door. Not to mention the dirt.
  • Smoke detector just hanging
  • Just some of the filth in the bathroom
  • More mold in the bathroom
