    3/5

    • Liked: Staff & service
    • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

    I liked the price of the room and the convenient access to amenities like food and shopping. They are under new management and are trying to improve. There was some room key confusion when I stayed two extra days but no bugs or pests were seen. With the pool working and some landscaping it could be nice.
