2/5 Poor

Traveled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Amenities
This place was not worth the price whatsoever. Firstly, the rooms do not have microwaves which is wildly inconvenient. The on-site lounge and restaurant are also very expensive, making it more frustrating that there was no way to heat my own food in my room. Plus, there is no breakfast available with your room fee despite the price. Additionally, parking is not included in the room fee and there is no convenient or inexpensive place to park nearby other than their super expensive garage. And if you happen to have multiple cars for the same room, you must pay parking seperately for each vehicle. Plus, you must pay extra to leave the garage. Lastly, a cleaning person knocked on our door at 10am Sunday morning - waking us- asking when we would check out even though we had until noon. Very disappointed in the amenities included despite the room fees. What a ripoff.
