Rome was fine. Great shower and good cable, Restaurant was closed and bar stopped servicing food early. Didn't seem as if there were too many visiters due to holiday and bad weather. Rate was high

2/10 Poor

This place was very disappointing.
This was a very disappointing trip, especially for the price paid for the room. The property is not for people that don't like to walk a long way to get to their rooms! The parking lots are far away, and it is confusing to find you way around due to the layout of the property. I had worked on finding a nice room and sifting through all the phony reviews and thought I had found a decent place, but I was wrong. I was travelling with someone who shouldn't have had to walk so far to get to our room. Then the maintenance man knocked on our door at 6 in the morning!!! Seriously??? There is construction trash all over the back of the property, which was part of our view. The front desk clerk that checked us in was very loud and kept cutting in when I was trying to have a conversation with the clerk; I was stunned about that! I don't have too many nice things to say about this place, except that the room itself was nice and clean and appeared to be recently updated. Too bad the walk to get to the room was so far!

Great stay
It was great. Stayed 1 night. Prefer a shower curtain rather than glass doors because the room is small and everyone is trying to get ready at the same time. When we walked into our building it smelled "old" . But the room itself was ok
