    I loved the bed

    There was snot all on the bathroom wall it was really disgusting to see that and have to clean it off the wall, and the room should have been $60, it was nice that I could see the lake but why I was woke out my sleep at 9:30 I’m the morning from construction I really didn’t appreciate that, I most likely will never stay at your hotel again
