Disliked: Staff & service
Literally the worst customer service I have ever experienced! I stay up here usually twice a week for business. Absolutely worst checkin EVER! 45 minutes to get a room. Room was not cleaned yet and they hid in the back until it is just leaving you at the front desk wondering did they take a break, did they die, did they quit their job because it sucks? Manager Karen is absolutely USELESS!!!
