Absolutely horrendous! We checked into our room at 8:30pm and had to be moved twice. Our first room reeked like dirty feet. It smelled so bad your eyes watered.
When we tried to move they wanted to charge us an upgrade fee! I couldn't believe it. It wasn't our fault our room was uninhabitable. After 15 minutes of arguing, he 'did us a huge favour' and let us take another room for the same price.
Our second room was a disaster. Stickers all over the ceiling, cigarette burns in the carpet and it looked like somebody had kicked the door in at some point. The bolt was hanging off the inside of the door. I didn't feel safe at all considering the room doors are outside. After going back to the front desk again, the guy working was extremely rude. We asked him to come take a look at the door and again, after a few minutes of arguing he 'did us a favour' by going to look at it.
Totally unacceptable. Spend the extra $20 per night and stay somewhere else. It's worth it.
