Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Did not like that the room was not cleaned after first nights stay. No removal of waste or replacement of clean towels and wash cloths. Covid or no Covid, these two items should at least be performed. Takes little time and no problem with individual safety.
