          They do not change the sheets while you are there but will clean and bring towels. I had no problem with it being clean nor the maid service. They were very good.

          Can management check the housekeeping workers as there are too many complaints of it being filthy-management needs to correct this asap-out dated is one thing-being dirty is a worker problem which management MUST ADDRESS with the employees! Go behind your housekeeping and check their work-Very Important!!!!!!!!!!!!
