Due to Covid 19 they did not clean the room on our two night stay. Waste and used towel had to be put outside the room and clean items were left outside. They do not go into your room if you stay for more than 1 night

2/5 Poor

Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness
Sad face IconDisliked: Staff & service, amenities
When I arrived to my room almost an hour after check-in, the room was open and still being cleaned. My room phone did not work to call the front desk, so I had to go back down to the reception area. There was no TV control in the room. There was minimal channels available and no access to log in to Netflix or Amazon accounts to watch movies. The staff sent to my room did not have a uniform or ID on.
