  • Who cares

    Who cares what the hotel “houses” or “allows”….it’s a business like any other, and thank goodness no one was hurt.

      I you knew what kind of trash that stays there along with the "lewd behavior" that is constantly a problem being allowed by management, most places would have been shut down years ago. Do not stay at this "establishment." You never know what you will bring home with you both in person and in your luggage. Also, don't let your kids walk alone here, or for that matter your husband or wife. Have you figured it out yet, "Who Cares?" Full of Addicts, Sex Parties and what ever else goes along with this supposed "business."
