2/10 Poor

Upon checking in and entering our 1st room, there was a noticeable gap in our door which you could almost see into the room. The tv was on in the room, and the volume for the tv was broken. Absolutely no privacy. Bathroom had one towel and no shower soap. The outlets did not work and the alarm clock was ripped out from the wall. We requested a new room and were first told athat there was a maintenance guy on site that could "fix the issues in the room" no thanks? New room please. Now in a 2nd room, the tv volume still did not work!!!! There was a charge of 14.95 upon checking in as a separate hotel fee (working on getting a refund). Overall not satisfied with our stay the room was NOT worth the cost!!!

Mediocre hotel considering I paid almost 300 dollars for the night. It can’t be more basic, the put minimum effort. The entrance has a strong urine odor, quite unpleasant
