"Misleading Photos"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
This hotel was nothing like it looked online. There was absolutely no way I was going to let my wife stay in this roach motel. When we arrived and realized the ridiculously low quality of the room, we left. The hotel not only charged us for a nights stay (we weren't there 15 minutes), they charged the booking company for the entire stay. Companies like this should not be in business. Do not stay here.
