We booked 4 rooms, got in pretty late to this hotel at night we all went straight to gamble, went back to room straight to bed and once we got up in the morning to get our day started, NO HOT WATER!!! My whole group was upset, party of 15ppl no room had water, when we contact front desk, they weren’t very helpful!!! Which got us all upset 🙄 rooms were over $100 if we new this from the start we would have chosen a different hotel, long story short Hotel didn’t do nothing for us

No hot water. Told front desk,they said we need to let water run for 20 minutes to get warm since we were at end of the hall. Cold showers are not fun

3/5 Okay

Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
We would not have stayed if we knew there was construction on the inside and outside of the building. We waited a good 10 minutes with NO line to check in because the staff at the front counter where huddled up together on there cell phones and wouldn’t even acknowledge us. Very disappointed and will not stay again.

1/5 Terrible

I had reserved this room to stay but my flight was canceled and I did not make it to the hotel. But I had sent my friend to stay there because I was not going to make it and you refused to let her stay even though I had already paid $160 for the room. I will never recommend anyone to stay there for that reason. Ronald Kline
