Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
The staff will look you in the eyes and lie right to your face. The left hand does not know what the right hand is doing. Restaurant closed when supposed to be open. REFUSED to give me a receipt for my stay. Had to get corporate involved. No stairs and one elevator not working.

Great location, plenty of parking and easy to get to. Staff was awesome, they were so polite helpful. My room was clean but in need of some repairs. The shower rod was broken, the toilet flush trip lever wasn't working properly, the bathroom ceilings were peeling, and water stained, door hardware was missing or broken, tub drain was clogged.

Price quoted on Expedia was way off in the end.....and I believe I was overcharged for a fee that was never refunded. But.......I don't know since I never received a receipt as promised.

When we checked, we were informed there would be no housekeeping for our entire three-day. Our bed was missing a top sheet. There was an empty glass on its side outside someone’s door the whole of our stay. Just sloppy all the way around. Will never stay there again, ever.
