"Housekeeping not doing a very good job."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
There were items left in the room from prior occupants, which was very disconcerting. We had to call for a remote for the TV as there wasn't one in room upon arrival. We had to call to have someone sweep up shards of glass from a broken beer bottle in front of our unit. Walls are very thin, occupants above us sounded like a herd of elephants and I don't think they were being particularly loud, just very antiquated structure. This property could be so nice but in desperate need of renovation. The toilet had to be ancient given it's proximity to the floor, very low, very small toilet. The beds were terrible and more than squeaky each time you moved, more groaning, squeaky noise. Zero reception on the TV and only 10 channels. A very disappointing experience. Couldn't get out of there soon enough in the morning.
