  • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Horrible experience! Very below average hotel (it was more a motel than a hotel)!!! I send 1000$ for the room for a normal weekend and it was nothing more than an avarage Motel 6 quality! Didn't have elevator! Very long dirty hallway way plus the stairs to get to the room, no room service (they said bevouse of covid!!!! I really didn't understand it), the most disgusting thing was the breakfast! One of the worst breakfast you can get in a motel! I was shocked when I saw it! I never have seen such a low class breakfast in a hotel which charges over 200$ per night (they charged 500$ per night and should have had at least an average quality breakfast)! Definitely not recommend it at all! What a waste of money!

      This was our first time staying here and Overall the property seemed nice. They however gave us a room that was right next to an exit and an elevator so we got no sleep at all. Not to mention the kids above us stomping around all night. We tried to switch rooms but apparently they were at capacity and we booked through Expedia so they wouldn’t switch us which was very disappointing and unfortunate. Especially since we arrived later and we drove three hours to get there. My wife and I are both first responders and veterans so we were hoping for a quick, quiet get away but that didn’t happen. I guess I’ll try and book directly next time so they’ll accommodate us if we need to switch rooms
