    Why is it on your list of hotels.? It was so shabby. No wi fi, no hair dryers, Mildew on the toilet seats which were chipped . Stains on rug, chipped entrance dirty and shabby, furniture stained and chipped The owner should be ashamed! Even if these things were taken care of it still should be 99.99 a night. I would love to get my hands on the rehab.
