2/10 Poor

I really was looking forward on the stay to sankara ..! Upon arrival I received not welcoming I stood by receipt for long time while receptionist (Lidya ) was on personal .. Solomon walked in and served us from drying standing up 😊 Solomon made our whole stay very comfortable .. he was very helpful and went out of his way to make our stay comfortable (he deserve raise and upgrade ) Everyday morning On our stay we had to sign after breakfast (they said was just protocol ) coming to end of our stay we were checking out and paying our bills to find out we were billed for things that we weren’t supposed too bill was 700$ something we end up paying 300$ something Breakfast on room which was breakfast included We had 2 rooms both room upon arrival was breakfast included .. we had to argue about the bill for like 1hr they then removed one room breakfast but we still have to pay for one other room (we were breakfast included package ) at end we decided to pay and leave JUST PAY ATTENTION TO BILLS also there is security check diversity there are people go through security check and there some people who don’t (colorism’s Was felt ) As hotel that is under Marriot has no Marriot standard ..
