The most TERRIBLE experience EVER staying at the property!! The front desk manager William was so unhelpful and rude. William lied to us repeatedly. We were told we had to pay twice as much to add a third person to our room. Then the room was so dirty, there was so much dust on all the furniture, the beds had stains on them, the bathrooms were so dirty with mold all over them. The smell of smoke was everywhere in the room with the smell of mold, which made two of us sick as we are allergic to mold! Would NOT stay here again!

Most staff doesn’t speak English, it was difficult at times to communicate for example for our dinner reservations transportation. Rooms are a bit date but ok, at least clean.

1. Delayed at security gate on arrival-not on list 2. Delayed at parking area, no shuttle to Emerald 3. Checked into room occupied by guests. 4. 1hr above delay to dinning room. Which closed at 945pm. 5. Mini bar is 1 bag of small peanuts and one warm Pepsi 6. Poor quality room: bathroom ceiling dripping water. Mirror spotted. Mold in shower. Poor lighting. More to write but I'm sure you already have heard. 7. Poor quality breakfast and lunch. Dirty plates, raunchy glassware, over-cooked food. We went off property for dinner. 8. Off property all day and hassled on return. 9. One dinner at the Asian restaurant. a) white wine pairs with Asian food - red wine doesn't. However, the Asian restaurant only offered red wine by the glass. Had to buy a bottle of white wine in order to have an appropriate pair to the meal. 10. Service staff spent more time eating and drinking then they do serving. Supervisors non-existent. This hotel is in real need of qualified leadership. The line level works would sure do as guided, but the lack of management is not guiding them. 11. Housekeeper turned the AC to 60F daily. On our returned the room was so cold from running the AC from 8am to 8pm that we had to open the back door and front door to warm up the room. This warmed up the room in appx 20 mins, but now it was also full of mosquitos. 12. Lastly, the Expedia receipt says paid in full. However, we were charged an additional $100 for poor services.
