Overall it was a nice stay. Facilities were clean, room was good, breakfast buffet was above average. Coffee was terrible, and the TV in the bedroom needed a real remote control, not a dumbed down “hygienic” version that was a major pain to use. I’d stay here again.

We understand some of the floors were being renovated. we did need to ask for a a blanket for the pull out couch and when we went to call the desk, the phone wasn't attached a cord. The staff were absolutely lovely and very helpful. We would stay there again, my kids did enjoy the pool and making their own pancakes .

It was old and worn out in the room. Drawer wouldn’t close in the middle of the walking pass through area. It was out when we came in and would not stay closed. Major tripping hazard. Housekeeping obviously ignored the problem. Desk chair was peeling apart. Bathroom was okay but some black mold below the shower fixture. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Came to fix the drawer situation right away.
