2/10 Poor

I want to discount the toilet had black stains I have photos which I was tempted to Place I the reviews however changed my mind the floor was dirty the cupboard I which had to hang clothing g had blankets in cupboard that spelt disgusting and there was no wasy I was going to my clothing in that cupboard, 1 wine glass honestly happy to send the photos of the toilet it was so gross , never ever this ghastly experience and if you look my study’s using this app I am applaud that I had to pay so much for a horrible stay with husband and our granddaughter. I would not have paid as much as $150 for that room 😞 extremely disappointing

Was tidy & nice room, but hall outside had a musty smell. Spacious & good views, easy parking. Unfortunately the fold out couch our son had was very worn, dipped in the middle & was very uncomfortable to sleep on
