The a/c worked well, even though it was covered in dust.
They charge $90 for the smallest room I have ever stayed in. There were all kinds of different stains on the bed sheets and bathroom floor. The shower was moldy, lamp shades have a thick layer of dust over them.. I did not see any bugs, but It would not surprise me to find some. This room is extremely small and very dirty. I had to place a towel in the bath tub just to feel a little safer about showering in it. I would highly recommend you spend the little extra cash and stay somewhere else!!
The building had a notice dated 3/15/13 declaring the building unsafe and :This building shall be vacated shall not be occupied". City of Fort Lauderdale posted a Stop Work sign because the owner/contractor did not have a permit to continue repairs to a fire on the second floor. The room had human/food stains on everything: bed covers, walls, lampshade, windows. Overall, the building was in disrepair and should not be listed as a Kayak accommodation.
It was so dirty. I killed at least eight cockroaches while I was there, and never took my shoes off so I wouldn't touch the carpet with bare feet. The room next to mine was completely burnt out and there was a sign that said the entire building was condemned. I will NOT be returning there.
