The staff was very friendly, the room was clean and loved the floors. The breakfast was pretty good
The shower didnt drain very well.
It was quiet
The bathroom was filthy, including all the hair on the floor!
Arrived from the airport after a long flight at 2:10 and was told I was unable to check in until 3:00. The parking lot was empty, no one was there. It would've been nice to settle in and clean up before meeting up with family. The pillows were tiny.
Nothing at all it smelled of musty water and cigarette smoke.
We paid a $50 cash deposit because I paid for the room in cash so ($78) so $128 in total. The Gentleman at the from counter told us that the $50 deposit was refundable if there was no damage to the room and that he would be the one inspecting it the next morning and if there was no damage we would get it back. So my wife and I literally were on the hotel 8-9 hours from check in to check out the following morning. Went to the front counter to check out the gentleman had no interest in checking our room so we could get our deposit back he handed me back $7 and told me that the house keeper took the rest of the deposit but couldn’t tell me for what. Keep in mind literally all we did was shower sleep wake up and leave. We didn’t even eat breakfast because there wasn’t much of a selection.
Front desk help accused me of breaking faucet that didn't work, told me I could move to another hotel if I didn't like it. Never had everything needed to make cup if coffee in the morning.
