Traveled with group, Business traveler
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Hot water didn’t work half the time. Food was awful. Tried to charge extra after I paid through Expedia. No WIFI. No air conditioning. Frequent power surges. I would not recommend!

1/5 Terrible

Traveled with group, Business traveler
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This was a terrible experience. No WiFi, no way to communicate with anyone without it. The advertising said high speed internet, but it just wasn’t the truth. The service was terrible, the food was terrible, just everything was terrible. I wouldn’t ever stay here again or recommend it to anyone. The staff was friendly. That’s the only good thing I can say about this hotel. Very disappointed in everything else.
