I wanted to be able to use my $100 TravelZoo gift card to offset the cost of my room, but was unable to.

Other Comments
My experience was very positive with the exception of cleanliness. On two different occasions I found the previous occupant's socks on the floor. More attention needs to be paid to thoroughly cleaning rooms.
