We got the hotel for the pool but we’re not allowed to use it.

Stayed 1 night in Jun 2020

3/5

    I was very surprised the bathroom did not have a vent fan! Talk about an accelerated way to grow mold! The shower curtain was VERY annoying as it was too narrow to cover the width of the tub and it was on a curved rod. As a result, I had an abundance of water on the floor. The king room and bed were nothing to brag about so I can honestly say it was average. The indoor pool and breakfast bar were closed due to the pandemic and the only food offered was coffee , juice, oatmeal, and packaged mini muffins. I thought about changing hotels but since I was gone from mid morning until around 9 pm, it wasn’t worth it. The only glowing report I can give is I did feel safe as a woman traveling alone.

      • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

      Seldom was the front desk clerk at the front desk. The lounge/breakfast area was an absolute mess with no food service staff around to clean up the food and spills all over the floors, tables and counters, etc. There was even food on the floor of the elevator. Garbage cans overflowing through breakfast service.... It was disgusting.

      $20 pool pass
