Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
My bed mattress was the worst one I have ever slept on in a hotel. Massive indentations on both sides of bed. Never seen anything like that. The place needed cleaning better. The library where we worked for business was dirty and not vacuumed for a long time. The pool area at 9 am when I went down had about 18 empty beer bottles on the table as you walk out into the pool area, with the box, plates and other debris from the night before.

3/5 Okay

Traveled with partner
Liked: Staff & service
It was... alright. Nothing special other than a good rate. Our room did not smell nice at all (musty/mildew scent to it every time we walked in). I understand that with COVID there may be some precuations taken by the housekeeping staff, but we were never informed about replacing coffee/towels. Shower was kind of gross, it was simply dirty. Bed was a bit too soft and lacked firmness. Overall, decent rate but would not stay again.
