This was horrible, half of the lights didnt work in the building, they had no extra pillows (the pillows were flat as can be) or blankets - they were supposedly all at a cabin (whatever that means). I stayed in a 7 person suite and they gave us 4 shower towels, luckily they had a few extra towels. One of...
