I checked in to this hotel, found immediately that the bathroom sink did not drain and the drain cover in the center of the floor was loose. When I returned an hour later after asking that the problems be fixed, I discovered that the drain now worked--the floor drain cover was still disconnected--but that the entire wing of the hotel reeked of wretched sewage gas. The desk clerk came to the wing and confirmed that the smell was most evident.
I asked to have my fee cancelled since I was checking out immediately. They refused to cancel my credit card transaction, offering only to find a room in another section of the hotel.
I chose not to stay any longer and would strongly urge people to avoid this stink hole.
