I loved the bed
There was snot all on the bathroom wall it was really disgusting to see that and have to clean it off the wall, and the room should have been $60, it was nice that I could see the lake but why I was woke out my sleep at 9:30 I’m the morning from construction I really didn’t appreciate that, I most likely will never stay at your hotel again
Having to check in with security before entering during the day.
Perfect spot to see the outside Due to corvid everything was not available maids trash ect doorman Construction in the front also but over all it was a good stay
Yeah shops were closed
Room was very nice and big.
