Travelled with family
Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
After getting into the room using the drive thru check in I was immediately hit with a strong odor of cigarette smoke. It was hard to breathe. The room was labeled a non smoking room. The room was very very dirty. Dirt was everywhere. There were blood / splatter stains in the bathroom. The bathtub was black with dirt. There was no sheet on the bed. I called Expedia and demanded a refund. They had to get approval from the hotel to get a refund. The hotel refused to give a refund. Do not stay here !!!!! All the bad reviews are accurate.
