    This is my hotel of choice for sure. I wasn’t thinking about March Break. The kids were running well passed midnight. A lot didn’t have masks on. I didn’t bother calling the desk....parents should have been more attentive. I also love the convenience of the restaurant...food is excellent.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Room was set to 30 degrees when I got in. Took over an hour to cool down to a reasonable temperature. No housekeeping-- "COVID precautions"--except they still have housekeeping when people check out, so it's obviously just a money-saving measure (which, fine, but then charge significantly less). Most of the staff was disinterested-at-best. Wouldn't stay or recommend staying here again.

    ot pleased

    I was very disappointed in this hotel. The service to check in was very slow and we waited over 10 minutes. The room was clean but I found it quite dusty. The amenities were fine but it was quite nosy in the late evening. Location was good.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    This place was amazing. Especially Jessie the manager, and housekeeping. Stayed with my little paraplegic dog and a friend so they could take care of my dog while I was in hospital getting surgery. Sadly my friend wound up having heart problems on my last night in hospital. The housekeeping staff took care of my little dog for me for the 17 hrs nobody was there with him. Simply amazing people. On a worse note the night clerk with black hair, tried to double charge me for the night my friend was there alone with Jack. Lucky my friend had told me they paid for it. When I told him that he didn’t even apologize to me just didn’t charge me the extra 100. Watch him!
