Indoor pool is non operational and/or under construction. Overall this hotel has deteriorated over the past few years and needs money put into it to bring back to what it was 10 years ago.

Rude check in. Very small rooms. Overall would not stay there again. Then they charged me for things I didn’t use. Water. A second valet fee I guess because I had two rooms. Then a 280 deposit for who knows what reason.

I was moved my second night twice in the middle of the night, because of very loud AC units. The first move was to a room with an even more disruptive noise. I was never once apologized to for the inconvenience. The housekeeping can to the room at 8:30, because I was on a conference call I asked them to come back… they never did. In my new room, they never once attempted to clean it. I was not asked how the stay was when I left. Overall, a very poorly run, and rundown hotel.

Rooms are pretty basic & bland, valet parking is required and not free of charge. High traffic area, difficult to get to. Valet staff ignored me when I first pulled up Sunday night. Will not stay here again.

First off the valet driver walks up to us doesn’t say anything when we asked if we can park or does he. He looked at us stupid still didn’t say anything. Then I go to the front desk to get checked in everything was paid for already so I had to put a CC done for Incidental they said it would be $50 but they where charging me for each night on the card which was more the $200 a night
