* Utensils and a cup were in a hand sink. Cigarettes were smoked in the rest room.

* There was no hot water at a hand sink or restroom.

* There were no paper towels in the restroom.

* A roll of paper towel at a hand sink was wet at the bottom. Algae from the ice machine was dripping on to the ice. Ice scoop was stored on a dirty surface.

* Bathroom cleaner was stored at the hand sink.

* The microwave was heavily soiled. A dirty knife was stored with clean utensils. The soda machine nozzles were heavily soiled, and debris flakes were inside the nozzle covers.
