Very quiet. Ceiling tile looked to be bleached. Seen black like mold at top of curtains. We were told first floor was being renovated. We stayed on 2nd floor. The only reason i noticed ceiling was due to a mishap i had. I didnt realize the curtain blind system. I pulled curtain to close and it was stapled to wood valance. Seen mold then. Told front desk what i did. They restapled it and i was chargef insidental fee. I was honest and have no problem paying the fee. I was told a fee would be put on my card of 25.00. Actually 50.00 fee. Never had this happen in all the times ive travelled. Lesson learned.

Almost everything was very good. The one drawback was there was no coffee available before 7 a.m. (nor breakfast) and I needed to be on the road by then.

The main lobby and pool were all absolutely gorgeous - clean and updated. The rooms were much less so. Our bathroom was TINY, there were leaves on one of the pillows when we arrived, the first-floor balcony floor was filthy with dead bugs. The guest rooms need to be updated to keep up with the public areas.
