Toilet didn't work. Despite complaint, not fixed. No plug for tub. CAUTION: the bed sits on some sort of frame with heavy extensions poking out that WILL cut your leg. Traffic noise. Jalousie blinds did not keep out a blasting spotlight all night. Internet: OK.More

Hi traveler, Fankly I'm not sure if there is a fitness area. I doubt it, though. They are running a low-budget operation. They don't seem to want to spend money on anything that isn't absolutely necessary.
