Resort Needs a Refurbishment

Cleanliness Not a Priority
There is no daily maid service at this hotel unless you pay an additional charge. Guests mention finding dirty dishes that had been put back in the cupboards, as well as trash from previous tenants underneath the beds. It doesn't appear that they do a thorough job of cleaning in between guest visits.
