5/5 Excellent

    Great place but Expedia sucks !!

    I will return to the property.for.sure but I will never use Expedia again. They'll hibernate during the Corona virus!!


    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    Hotel was very clean and the King Suites are great for extra space and the ability to cook and have food items that need to be cooked/refrigerated. The area is wonderful with many local restaurants and shops within walking distance. The down side was that you can hear EVERYTHING. Anyone walking by in the hall, the people stomping around in the room above you (all night long in our case), the people in the room next to you. I've never experienced sound issues in a hotel like this before. For this reason I would be hesitant to return. Everything else was great.
