Traveled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The room was shopworn and not minimally clean. Air conditioning so clogged with dirt that we had to have it cleaned so that the unit actually functioned. Staff disengaged and incompetent. No restaurant on site: coffee @ limited food, quality of a highway gas station, all atrocious. Sorry I believed any of the posted reviews.
