The staff were more than pleasant to deal with and very accommodating.

The building was bigger than we anticipated and also allows pets.

Its nothing like the pictures this place is smells and its dirty, half of the time there was no one at the front desk just a phone number that didn't work

No early check in unless you want to pay almost the cost of one extra night! Not even an hour early! (3pm check in). No one at the desk- had to call them. Clean enough room. Awful breakfast. No tea, no oatmeal or eggs- all carb/grain. Morning front desk person SMOKING at the pool!!!!!! Then had the guts to tell me I shouldn’t have my styrofoam bowl of fake Cheerios - sign only says no glass, not “no food or drink.” Left her cigarette on the pool deck. Dirty pool water and pool. At least the person who cleans the room knows how to do their job.

please don't add this hotel in your list everything is disgusting .the whole building need a renovation. even the staff need a replacement.

By far the worst hotel I’ve ever stayed in. The price was definitely too high for this room, but the reviews weren’t the worst so we went ahead and booked. The property itself is extremely outdated and unclean. The bathroom looked like it had smokers in the room for several years with the yellow walls. The ceiling appeared to be falling in a bit. The tile in the bathroom was extremely dirty both around the tub and the toilet. We’ve stayed in older properties before but this was so gross, not just “old”. I truly cannot see why it was priced at nearly $150/night. Not to mention, the staff used her room key to come into our room at 11:30 pm. Thank goodness we had it double latched. She never knocked or anything! She argued that we had called for room service to fix a TV. When we called the front desk to complain we then noticed the phone wasn’t even plugged in! There was no cord to even call!!!! It was just sitting on the table unplugged.

Rooms were spacious and bed was very comfortable but there was a dirty wash cloth hanging on top of the shower curtains. Nasty. Breakfast is very poor too.

I arrived around 9PM, the room was still not ready. I waited 30 mins to check in. Front desk shown wrong face all the time and didn't even looked at you when talked with you. Lobby was really hot. Refrigerator in my room was not working. AC was like a mad bull shaking its cage. A good thing about the room was it was not smelled moldy.
