Property conditions & facilities

3/5 Okay

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I have stayed here many times prior to the start of covid. It was always well maintained even though it was an older property. This trip you can see how the last few years have taken a toll on the property. The lobby is closed, you can't even go in it. Breakfast is gone. Not even coffee in the morning. The staff is not friendly and stays locked in their office and only deals with customers through a small hole in the window, My room was actually recently refreshed with new paint and some new furniture so it was ok but the rest of the property was worn and not kept up as it used to be. It was also empty with about 10 other rooms being occupied so business is down from several years ago.
