The hotel was eerily empty on Thanksgiving weekend(should've been my first clue). The beds are thin and sagging( we rolled toward center and all woke up with back aches), lampshades stained and burned( turned backwards to hide damage so seam on shade showed), dirty wallpaper peeling in room and hallways, dusty old tv's, sagging shower rod, found a pill/vitamin(?) on floor. Visible dark stains on bed ruffle. The hallways were dimly lit. The indoor pool was nice, although we had to call to get any towels. After checking in and dragging our stuff upstairs, our room keys did not work. I called the front desk and they sent housekeeping right up, while we stood in hallway. It took him 2 trips back down and up to fix key situation. The worst was on the morning we were packing up to leave, we found ants in the room crawling around window (which was an interior window facing indoor pool) and the table, on top of one of our bags and our shoes. We did not have any food in the room. We were completely grossed out and washed everything including our bags when we got home. We will never stay there again!
