Decent hotel, but too many issues with the room during our stay. The door didn’t work properly. After maintenance “fixed it”, we still had to lower our shoulders and force the door open. The microwave was broken. The ironing board was broken. There was no shower curtain in the bathroom. The valet parking area is very narrow, so it leads to congestion. The breakfast needs a waffle or pancake maker. I shared my dissatisfaction with the front desk clerk at checkout. She was polite, but said there was nothing she could do since I booked through a third party. Frankly, I neither requested nor cared about a refund or discount. I’d be satisfied knowing they’d commit to ensuring these things didn’t happen to other guests, because the hotel would otherwise be a great option for future visits.

It was very disappointing that the pool was broke on such a hot weekend but the manager gave us options and tried to make the best of it. Everything else was perfect.

I specifically booked for the pool and it was out of order the whole stay. Disappointing for the kids after a hot day out. Paper products used at breakfast because dishwasher was broken. Microwave in room broken couldn’t heat up dinner. The manager was helpful and made good on the inconvenience and the valet guys were excellent, never waited long for my car
