A complete disappointment.
It all started when I tried to check-in 45 minutes early. You would imagine no hotel would say no to such silly request but they did. I was covered in sweat and had my luggage with me but they still didn't budge. I was told my room was being cleaned thus why I couldn't check in. Since I had to be somewhere at the time I decided to postpone my check in for later that evening and take my luggage with me. They offered to keep my luggage until check in but I didn't feel comfortable with that.
Came back later that night and finally checked in. The room was dirty and poorly serviced, I doubt anyone cleaned it after the previous guest checked out. The room's furniture had stains all over the place.The TV didn't have one single HD channel. Even the controller to the TV was dirty. I actually put it inside a plastic bag. The linens for the bed were about the only thing in the entire room that "looked" cleaned.
Overall, the room was old, smelly and poorly maintained.
The bathroom was disgusting. There were hairs and yellow nasty stains all over the place. Tried to take a shower and the drain was completely clogged. I basically had to shower on top of my own filth. Nasty.
Woke up at the crack of dawn and checked out immediately. I spent less than 12 hours in that place and it was still too much to bare.
Soon after leaving the hotel I realized I had bites all over my legs.... not sure what kind of critters did it but I assure you I did not have them prior to arriving to the hotel.
This was perhaps the worst hotel stay I've ever had. I will never set foot here ever again.
It was a complete waste of money.
