It was quiet.DISLIKE: This was the only place on our trip where our cc left our hands. Somewhere on this trip, our cc was compromised and attemps were made at use immediately following our stay..
Check in staff was unfriendly. First room smelled awful...we were moved and informed there had been a problem with our first room - other guests had to be moved due to the smell. WHY would they ever put us in the room without taking care of the problem?
They staff was great and I enjoyed staying there.
The parking lot was a bit sub par.
