    It should be best described as a Pet Hotel....its

    Bugs on the wall, in the bed, on the moldy shower curtain. The Air Conditioner was broken for 1/2 the stay.... Light bulbs burned out Filthy, filthy tile floor in bathroom and carpet was nasty....Looked like it hadn't been cleaned in months. Lamp shade with dirt and food wiped on it.

    Better cleaning staff

    The price was what attracted me to this facility. The drive through check in was convenient.

    The cleanliness was lacking, and I have pretty low standards. The shower had a noticing ring. The bedding, linens and shower curtain looked as if someone who has just finished replacing a car engine slept in the bed , then showered. And none of this was cleaned after.
