2/5 Poor

Business traveler, Traveled with family

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
the front desk staff were very polite. When we entered the room, there was a dead roach on the floor in the bathroom. When we left for supper, there was only one place to eat and it was pitiful. Food selection was sparse and the food we chose was awful. Chicken salad was equivalent to chain store and nachos were even subpar. When we returned to room, the key would not work. The lock had completely failed and we were given a room to wait in. After an hour and a half (time was getting late) they got the door opened. We retrieved our items and stayed in the new room. Very disappointing. The staff did work hard on getting lock repaired.
