“The worst Hotel ever!”
Reviewed 17 July 2003

This was by far the worst hotel experience of my life. The place is old, which isn't a problem, but it was not well-kept or clean.There were "mystery hairs" in the tub and sink, the shower did not work, the bed looked like the Grand Canyon and there was no A/C. The wallpaper was torn and gouged. Although we got a non-smoking room, it smelled like there was a cigar-smoking poker game in there the night before.Well, I'm out of time, but you get the picture.
