My friend Johnny set me up at this location and it was on POINT

Stayed 2 nights in Mar 2020


  • Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
  • Disliked: Amenities

I didn't like the fact we didn't have a bathroom inside the room. We had to go outside the room. The tv was so little it look like a iPad on the wall. Some of the channels don't work. They provide with two towels but no wash cloth. It is extremely hot in the room. The staff is nice there clean. U need a code to get in the bathroom. Overall I will not be going back to this hotel
