The rooms were smaller then I’m used to and there was some water damage in the bathroom and the “pool” was the size of a hot tub but the room was clean, smelled nice and the front desk was very friendly.

1/5 Terrible

Traveled with family and small children
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I didn’t like anything from the hotel. There was no air conditioning where we had breakfast, and on top of that it stank. The staff were friendly and helpful, which was the only thing good out of this experience.
