Booked hotel off Expedia with price and location in mind. Hotel describes itself as a boutique, renovated charming hotel, one block from the intercoastal. None of the descriptions are valid. The lobby reminds one of UPS drop off office with a staff that is "clueless" aka "valley girls".
Room that was promised was not available so I was put into a "woodstock" type cubicle complete with bazaar colors and broken furniture. The lampshade was balanced against the wall & and a extension cord was draped over a door sill to power the air conditioner.
The floor was concrete and the tile in the bathroom was disgusting. When I turned on the shower the shower head produced a stream from the leaking pipe connection that sprayed up to the ceiling.
The only thing missing were "hookers" conducting business, or John Cleese at the front reception area, as in "Faulty Towers"
