Front desk staff was friendly & competent. Unfortunately the breakfast staff was NOT. At least 15 minutes before the end of the the breakfast time, the hot food was gone, the hot water was empty, and there was no staff person seen until the lights were turned off and cleanup began. We stayed 2 nights & our experience was the same both mornings. It was apparent the staff didn’t want to be bothered to have food available for guests if they arrived within the last 15 minutes, & who knows how long before that? A very disappointing experience.
