I should have been suspicious when we were charged $15.00 more than a couple that checked in just before we did. On the way to the room we noted very poor lighting, lots of...

I was greeted in my room with a roach crawling along the wall. The room was filthy and I got moved to a new room. I slept with the lights on to dissuade any more animals. Uncomfortable beds, noisy AC and curtains that don't close all the way granting me no privacy.
