4/10 Fair

The staff/GM wife and husband team are not very kind. We had an issue with dirty coffee cups 4 out of 4 were filthy. The treated my 19yr old daughter like she didnt matter. She shouldnt had gotten the third degree for bringing them up to the front desk. Heaven help if you ask for an extra cup of coffee in your room. 1 each no more. I wanted to take a picture of the cups and they wouldnt let me. I finally did and the old couple who ran the place hot mad because I wanted to post them. They proceeded to tellme that they were the owners of the entire hotel chain. I was recording a video at the time they said that they own the hotel. It was really stupid for all this to happen. But they nees to learn not to disrespect people. They thought since my daughter was young(19) that they could do that. I recommend american to stay away, they are to stern, this hotel is just the opposite on how American hotels are ran. Look at their reviews, Im not alone.
