"Filthy tub, entire hallway smells like marijuanna"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed July 07, 2020 NEW
1st time we stayed here in Dec it was great. This time as soon as we got to our room, I wanted to take a shower, pulled back the curtain & what appeared to be feces was on the wall & down the back of the tub. Went to the desk & showed them the picture. Asked to me moved to another room, since I know they were only at 50% capacity (desk told me that). They said no & sent someone to clean it. I was still so grossed out even though they cleaned it. I had to drive to a family members house to shower. This is supposed to be no smoking, but I guess marijuanna in the rooms & hallways is just fine. I could smell it all night through my door. My hair & clothes smelled like it.
