    Absolutely disgusting. From the entry doorway having hair and dead insects (that have been there so long they have dust on them) to the pubic hair coated toilet and bathroom, this room was Feral. Dead flies adorned the bedhead and the fridge door.

    I have stayed in better for less. A terribly run down smelly room, the beds seem comfortable. Online pictures we have seen don't resemble every room. If any. If you have allergies stay somewhere else.
