4/10 Fair

The property claims to be a 4 star, but it barely makes this rating. The base board surrounding the bathroom frame was cracked and falling off. The shower curtains were basically orange on the bottom and need to be replaced. Further, the shower curtain does not fit the length of the shower tub itself, so cold air is always coming in. There were light red/maroon stains on the wall between the patio door and television. Lastly, this is the first 4 star hotel I’ve stayed at where the guests do not have the ability to increase or decrease the air conditioning. After speaking to the front desk, they stated it is one system controlled by the hotel. It was got and miserable until about 3 in the morning. Having the patio door open helped, but it was a bit noisy and mosquitoes entered the room. It was unpleasant to say the least.
