3/5 Okay

Traveled with family and small children
Liked: Cleanliness
my room was fine, but my kids had a awful stinky room on the 6th floor. I was soooo embarrassed because I go the room for them. Floors were dirty (dried mud) on the hall floor. Bugs in their room. Plus they had to walk up 2 flights of stairs with all their luggage. Poor hotel.

2/5 Poor

Traveled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The property is a bit older but well maintained. The halls are brightly lit. It is clean. They have a nice gym with fairly good equipment. The pool and hot tub are also enjoyable. They had provided 2 large inflated pool floaty animals for the kids. Lots of chairs and tables spaced spaciously about the area. Breakfast was also a pleasant surprise. Hot eggs, potatoes, pancake maker along with the usual cereals, yogurt and toast/muffins. Very nice ladies staffing it too. What we found a bit unusual was there was a single elevator for the 5 stories of rooms. We don't usually mind the stairs but we were on the top floor. It was also a very small elevator. Curious. The only real negative was the evening staff person. We came 20 minutes early and the room wasn't ready. OK, no problem. We will come back later. That being said, she was the angriest, most openly hostile creature I have ever met anywhere I have ever stayed. It wasn't just with me either. We have traveled extensively nationally and internationally and I have never seen anything like it. I realize that it is very difficult right now, and customer service can be trying. I worked in a service industry for more than 40 years. One takes a breath, puts a smile on one's face and moves on. I hope she is in a happier personal place today. I wouldn't want that greeting my guests on a daily basis.
