6/10 Good

My key card did not work properly and it took 2 days to fix. SInk was clogged and they never fixed it. Registration desk was sloppy and unresponsive largely. Very old, dated hotel. Most importantly, Expedia did NOT indicate clearly that this was a 4-start and not a 5-star hotel. That was the biggest flub.
