It's so noise outside. Looks like a lot of things that's aren't right goes on at your hotel! Whatever you guys use to clean it out is too strong! And the chair inside the room needs to be in the trash.

Bathroom was full of Mold at the top of the wall this is not very good especially people with allergies. Carpet could have cleaner in the room itself.

I think that a very good door sweep or molding could cut down on outside noise and air infiltration plus keep any bugs out

The website shows photos of updated rooms and ones that have not. We were given one that was not update. The room was clean. Things are just old and need to be updated. Staff was friendly. No issues for our short stay.
