Some of the problems contained within the confines of my hotel room's walls are as follows:
1. Rust was never in short supply. Anything metal was rusty, indicating a moisture problem. This is reinforced by the fact that the wood of most furniture and decor items was warped. Also, ceiling tiles by the bathroom contained mold and were in general disrepair.
2. The floor, for whatever reason, was bouncy. Walking next to the dresser yielded a shaking of the television and all of the contents of the dresser top. Speaking of the dresser drawers, 3 out of 4 were broken.
3. The light above the television was rather non-functional, to the point where the room seemed like a discotech because of the strobing action. If you're into character rooms, and you'd like to simulate a rave, come on in.
4. The beds do not contain fitted sheets, and the duvet covers smelled faintly of febreze, which said to me they were not properly washed in a while.
5. The shower. In a word? Awful. The faucet was entirely loose, crooked, leaked, and the water pressure was almost pathetic. It was a crapshoot to turn off the cold water, as it spun 360 degrees, without any indication that it was shutting off.
6. The gentleman, Ghandi, that aided us with our reservation and stay was very diligent, attentive and overall excellent. This is the reason they get one star. Kudos, Ghandi.
If you're willing to overlook all of these problems, there is a warm and welcoming holy bible in the nightstand awaiting you.
p.s. the area is awful.
p.p.s. do not eat at the Taco Bell across the street, as the food is not fresh, and actually seems to be refrigerated prior to being served.
