horrible rooms, nasty smelling, bugs

I had booked for 6 nights but left after 3 nights, could not take the smell coming from air conditioner unit. It smelled like mold and mildew. it never shut off unless I turned it off my self. got bites on back, neck and shoulders from something in the room. Just plain nasty place. housekeepers walked in with out knocking or any advanced notice. 3 different ones came every day. finally called front desk and reported this and said they would take care of it right away, 15 minutes later, another knock, Housekeeping again. ARE YOU KIDDING ME. then they had someone power washing walkway. I got soaked sitting at the desk. all the water came through the door all over me, the computer and the desk. That was the last straw. I went up and said I am done, please refund my last 2 nights. They did with out any problems but I did pay for a night that I did not spend their but I was there past the check out time and I am the one that said I would pay for that night. I myself cleaned the room before I left. But if I were someone that was considering staying here, I WOULD GO ELSEWHERE. FOR 30 BUCKS MORE A NIGHT, YOU CAN GO TO THE VERY NICE MOTEL RIGHT IN FRONT OF THIS PLACE....
