  • Liked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Out of all the times my family have stayed there this was the worst time. I had to ask to have the room cleaned I had to ask for clean lienes. The phone or clock didn’t work, also the room smelled so musty I had to use febreeze to make the room smell somewhat tolerable. The girls at the front desk was rude left me standing there while she answered the phone in front of me. Never have I ever had anything bad to say but this time I do
