Meh - for $12 more I should have gone to Sahara

Title says it all... The room was alright looking, the bed wasn't that great, the view was neither good nor bad. There is not even a mini fridge The AC/Heater unit is louder than a herd of Rhino's You can't use the bath tub! seriously, why have a huge spacious beautiful bath tub, but no way to plug it to enjoy a warm bath! where the heck is the logic in this?! The towels are small / short again, the room was -loud-. Like lots of white noise. Honestly, spend the extra $12-$14 and go to The Sahara around the corner.
