Sad face IconDisliked: Room comfort
Too many extra charges
The hotel is very quiet. Perfect to relax. The down side was charged way over the amount that hotels puts on their portal room said it was $130 ended up paying close to $200 that included the $10 they charge to use the air conditioner mind you I only stayed 1 night. The problem with the A/C didn’t really cool the room. My husband and I hardly slept. We only had breakfast. Didn’t like it only really enjoyed the coffee. I don’t think I will return.
