Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
The facility looks decently maintained from the outside, but the rooms have peeling wallpaper, smell in the bathroom, chipped and cracked sink, etc. We requested comforters and were told they only have one. We asked again the 2nd day of our stay and were informed that the facility has none. The EVS staff were kind and helpful and the front desk staff varied in professionalism. We got to the lobby for breakfast towards the end of the designated time frame and found hardly any food; also the lobby was dirty and another guest decided to use profanity with my child and me. It was definitely not a good experience and we will not return to that location.
