Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Our room was very dirty, it took 2 hours to cool down our room. The ac unit sounded like it was broken. The pool was drained so we couldnt use the amenities. Overall one of the worst hotels ive stayed in.

The in-room amenities were better than expected. Would have been nice if the front desk was open before 9am, for early check-out.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I couldn't have been more pleased with the room. Nice and clean, the microwave and mini-fridge worked well--even a little freezer compartment in the fridge to put my ice pack. Clean floors, excellent bed, A/C to keep things cool, good elevator, the grounds are clean and well-maintained, the staff are intelligent and helpful. The rooms open from an outside corridor, so there is a fair bit of noise coming the parking lot and street. Bring earplugs for sure. It's a bit of a party hotel, this could be good or bad depending on your preferences.
