Nice Room
The room was a nice size, but no microwave. Room was clean. There was a wet carpet between the bed and the bathroom wall. I was told that often people shower and do not put the curtain inside the tub and water runs through the wall to the carpet. I thought that was unusual.

Spiders in room. No iron/ironing board. Construction began at 7 am. Breakfast was minimal at best, expected more.

Nice place
Arrived at 3:30 for 3pm checkin but room was not ready. When we returned at 4:30 there was a worker sitting in our room watching tv. Could not get wifi in the room the entire stay. Overall a good stay, and will come back. Our previous stay was better.
