  • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

When we arrived we were told the manager canceled our reservation!! This was extremely upsetting and took up a lot of our time. We asked if we could be upgraded since there was only 5 people staying on the entire hotel and they pretty much said no!! The valet parking is $30 a day and when you want your car you need to be prepared for a long wait! Room was very small with no hair dryer, they never asked to empty our trash and overall was disappointing.

  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
bed too high

I don't usually complain but the hotel was alright but the bed was too high. I am short and I also had a broken wrist I had so much trouble getting up onto the bed. There was no fridge. They had coffee and muffins and pastries for breakfast in the lobby every morning. The location was perfect.
