The property was old and very rundown. The room had several broken electrical outlets, the safety lock on the door was loosely attached, hot water ran continuously in the tub, the door when locked was loose and had air gaps. Our group scouted other hotels for next years stay.

You used to have a full American Breakfast, with bacon and sausage and scrambled eggs and country fried potatoes...
What is this slop you are now serving?
It is edible, but not at all like was before.
Thanks for removing those walkway screens!
