I regularly check trip advisor before booking any type of vacation yet have never written a review. After staying at this poor excuse of a hotel, I felt extremely compelled. This was one of the worst hotel stays my wife and I have ever experienced. I didn't check the reviews because my wife had already booked a room since one of her friends was getting married there. Had been to a wedding before at this hotel about 5 years prior but hadn't stayed the night and had had a great time then. Room was absolutely tiny and it completely smelled like must/sewer. Turned on the fan, sprayed Herbal Essence hairspray to freshen up the room and closed the door. We prayed that the smell would have gone away after the wedding but luck was not on our side. I wish I would have taken pictures of the room but didn't muster the courage to look at the room that closely. Broken tiles, moldy grout, and did I mention the smell. We visited another room later that night after the wedding that really was a lot better but they had no hot water. I highly recommend requesting to see the room before leaving your credit card at the front desk. And if they give you a room like ours, take a taxi and stay at the nearest Super 8 Motel on the US side. I'm sure it will be a LOT better than this place.
