"Not great room quality"

"Although the room was adequate for the evening I felt that the bathroom was ancient and needing repair - The cold water tap gave hot water and vice versa. The chalking around the tub and the paint job was really poor. No pool and no coffee maker in the room and minimum soap/shampoo. The towels were very rough texture. Next time I will likely try the Comfort Inn down the street a short distance."
