Travelled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The Room itself from the outside in was very run down & out dated. Inside the room was dirty mainly the floors where there were hairs, chubba chub wrappers, a kids toy & there were dead bugs in the room but also alot in the Spa. I definitely wouldnt pay $180 for 1night to stay there again.
