“Terrible facility”

  , Cottonwood
Pretty awful!Based on good reviews and how similar the amenities were (online) to Holiday Inn Express, this seemed like a good option. NOT!!!Odd smell as you walk in and down the halls... Wall in lobby area looked like a sledge hammer hit it. Upon reading a review from 4 months before the complaint was the same saying there was obvious reconstruction, but looked as if nothing was being done since. The carpet down going down the hall to the rooms was wrinkly and lifted up at the seams and I almost tripped. The mattress looked 20 years old and sagged in the middle. The soap was terribly cheap and smelled like hay. The shampoo and conditioner were so small only one hair wash could come out of them. We weren't the only ones with this problem, but something is wrong with the key system. It took a minimum of 4 tries to open the door. I would turn green, but then not let us in, and the green would go out. I watched others have this problem.Our room was a wheel chair access room, but the iron and ironing board were ON TOP of the wardrobe!!! For $129 I sure expected better than this!!!
