This was a challenging stay


March 07, 2023

This property struggled with respect to pricing in the convenience area. Mold could be seen working through the paint in the shower. There were cracks in the ceiling, because of venting that could not remove the moisture. The vent existed but no fan to evacuate. Trash was left behind from previous guests with mold in the tradh can. Disposal was not checked and evacuated, because we ran water that did not drain until we turned on the disposal. It was not a very comfortable stay.

The room was very clean also had a kitchen in there to cook small meals. The parking lot had plenty of parking. Just thought they will have free continental breakfast onsite. That will make more people come also with a beer tap and wine for social hour.
