    • Disliked: Staff & service

    The front staff was very rude. I noticed a large stain on my comforter, when I called to notify the front desk the male was very rude and exuded no customer service at alllllll. The rooms are outdated and dingy looking & there was a very strong smell in the restroom, I want to say maybe super strong cleaning products? But regardless the odor was unbearable. I’ve traveled to quite a few hotels, and this one makes the bottom of my list.
