Dated and tired

Walking through the door was like a stepping back in to the 80's. The mattress was shot, and my partner ended up sleeping on the floor, one bath towel for two people doesn't cut it, and I would not locate a public laundry next too rooms! I get it's a competitive market, but if you're not serious get out of the game. I wonder what international tourists think when they visit here.
