"Review before you go."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Three rooms were rented in one night. One room had stains on sheets of multiple colors. Second room had dirty towels just hanging from the shower with no toilet paper in the bathroom. And the third room had dirty sheets and then A/C unit that had mold piled inside of the vents. I removed my family from these rooms in less than an hour. I'll never stay here again. I went with an open mind and learned the tough way. Good luck to this company. You have lost my business for good.

Remember the covid times. That being said, help is needed here. TP missing, dirty towels and yes a stained sheet. However, the personal here was prompt to fix the issues stated. Our A/C could use a good cleaning too. Sorry for the staff, they're trying. Company, come on try harder.
