Reviewed 8 June 2014

I drove into town at about 3 am and needed to sleep a few hours and take a shower. The only downstairs non-smoking they had was hidden behind the pool (CLEANEST pool I've seen) next to laundry room. Turned out to be very quiet. No complaints there! The room looks as pictured. Not too clean though - and smelled it. Had two bathrooms... one for shower, one for sink and toilet. That would've been fine - if the toilet FLUSHED, and if there wasn't a steady leak in the tub-side bathroom. Not sure where it was leaking from - but I didn't use the shower until morning and in those four hours the water was building up quite a bit. Not something they could've not been aware of. Also clock radio was unpluged - when I plugged it in it was BLARING and couldn't be turned down or off. Unplugged it. The bed was comfortable at least. TV workrd. Didn't even look at fridge. I was extremely disappointed for the $70 spent.

We were not to happy w/ our room. It wasn't all that clean. There was black stuff on the first set of sheets. The fridge was not cold and the freezer part was frozen w/ a solid chunk of ice.
