Close to freeway which was convenient for us as we were on a road trip. The young lady who took care of us this time was somewhat disconnected during check in. The same young lady was working when we check out. I told her about the carpet being wet and she was very nonchalant about the concern brought up to her.

The front desk employees and the cleaning staff were all pleasant and friendly. The only issue we had was we killed a large roach the first night there. It was huge! We didn’t see anymore, but we were always looking. The curtains had small holes in them and need to be replaced. Beds were comfortable and the bathroom was clean.

It was our first visit to this excellent Hotel. Housekeeping ensured our Room was Superior Cleanest. Our stay was Sunday 5/30/2021. Our visit was spoilt by a "Rodery " crowd by the outside Pool. Broken Beer Glass bottles & obscene Crowd behavior. A Manager should have contacted the local Police.....That was unacceptable behavior.
