Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
The property needs to be renovated. Example: shower valve extremely difficult to pull on , sink faucet handle falls off. Also just FYI they are Carbon Monoxide sensors mounted near the ceiling, that is a heavy gas they need to be near the floor. No service to the room seems to be a growing trend being blamed on the pandemic that lowers the experience level significantly. The flood lights at night make it obvious this is a problem area, making future visits to this location unlikely. On a positive note the staff was very nice.

No housekeeping service because our stay was less than four nights. Room telephone operated oddly; no dial tone nor indication it connected to the office. Staff was responsive to issues raised and provided good service when requested.

1/5 Terrible

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The room smelled of cigarette smoke although I was told it was a non smoking room. The bathroom ceiling had a patched hole that wasn't painted. The shower faucet was loose and separating from the shower wall. The sink faucets were corroded and dirty. I could go on but this review is hardly worth my time I will never stay at a BW again.

I liked the lady at the front desk…. Very friendly and helpful. The grounds were nice. The size and layout of the room was fine. Our only complaint was that the room was not clean. The bathroom floor had hairs etc and we saw ants! The floors throughout the room were very dirty. Disappointing since we liked everything else.
