HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE
BEWARE!! Horrible customer service the worst we have ever experienced, my son took his medication worth $300+ and they went bad because their refrigerator was not working and we got no help what so ever from front desk, we also got charged $48 more at time of check-in. Shampoo/Conditioner dispenser were not working and again no help what so ever from front desk they blamed it all on you. I was wondering why this was one of the cheapest hotels around the area that didn’t look that bad now I see why! Stay away if possible
