      4/5 Good

      • Liked: Staff & service, amenities
      • Disliked: Cleanliness

      The property looked nice and the room had a nice appearance. There was a problem with a bed pillow that had an odor and the jetted tub which had hair in it. I delivered a note to the front desk asking to have the items cleaned, and they were, but no apologies. The hotel has been upgraded to look more modern, but the faux wood floors allow normal walking to be heard in the room above, as well as lots of noise from the shower. It was unfortunate, but Sat. and Sun. mornings I was awakened by overhead noise. The breakfast had a decent variety, but I didn’t care for the eggs with cheese. There was ample fruit to take and Greek yogurt too. The hotel seemed to be in a safe area and there were plenty of things to do in the vicinity. Upon check-in, a pleasant man welcomed me to the property and gave me a fresh-baked cookie. The parking lot was large.
