Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The worst customer service I have ever experienced. When checking out they act like you’ll run away with their little money even though they have your credit card on file. If you’re white they treat you like a god. But if you’re African you’re discriminated against. Pathetic place to stay. I won’t recommend it to my worst enemy. Stay away

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Staff & service
Run down bad service
Had to argue that I got free breakfast as that’s what i booked. Service was poor at best. Took too long to get my food and never saw a waiter until I had to flag them down to get my check.
