When I first arrived in my room I was overwhelmed by the smell of bleach. I guess that's a semi good thing to say that the room was clean but it was clearly overdone. The carpet was a little damp I'm assuming from the morning cleaning. The bathroom was small and the tub had some rust. Could use a little... More
