Staff weren’t at reception when I arrived and as it was within hours there was a phone to call the receptionist. When I called, his phone rang on the desk! So my 2 yr old and I had to wait 30 minutes for him to return so I could get our room key. When we finally got to the room there was no hot water! Receptionist did come and fix this issue but it was more lukewarm than hot. When I closed the curtains I pricked my fingers on all of the lose staples in it! The bed was cold and not much as far as blankets.

We have stayed before but this time it was noisy and awful. We had someone repeatedly trying to enter our room at 3.25am, they were told to leave but came back to try to access the room. I felt un-safe.
