Disliked: Staff & service, room comfort
The first room we had, smelled of weed. Asked for a replacement and got the room but the gentleman that helped us seemed upset I asked for a new room. The beds were very tiny. It barely fits two people (skinny). Hotel didn’t seem to clean and bathroom wasn’t the nicest. Overall, I probably wouldn’t chose to stay here again.
