  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

We had to change rooms three times because of issues in each room. Ac was broke no smoke detector in one. We returned to our room only to find some things missing and a curtain off the window. It had a bad odor outside the hall way. It is a very poor maintained place. Im surprised this place is still opened.

    • Liked: Cleanliness

    The property was what I expected for the price. My only hang up the entire time was that it is represented as having a 24 hr front desk staff and that wasn't true. Our key also stopped working every single day of our 4 day stay which required a trip to the office to have it reset. Other than that minor inconvenience, everything was fine and as expected.

    Do not stay here! Paid over $450 for a 2 night stay. The pictures are very deceiving. It's a total DUMP! First, we checked in at 9pm on Friday and hardly any parking. Get to room, find only 1 bath towel and half a roll of toilet paper. Call front desk, was told they are in the dryer and will send us more in a few minutes. Nothing came. Saturday, we went into office asked for towels and a roll of toilet paper. She said I'll have her take them to you. Again, nothing. She accidentally called the room so i was like wait. We're still waiting on towels and toilet paper. She said ok, I'll call you when i get them to pick them up. Finally at 10:30PM, she said we could pick them up. At 11:30pm when we're trying to sleep, the ppl in the pool are playing the music so loud that i can't hear the tv. Call her and the pool curfew was 11. Finally around midnight the music stopped. The condition of the room: cracked sink, plastic faucet that's painted chrome and moves when you turn it on, bed is crap, shower was painted and peeling, shower leaked constantly, when we showered, water hardly came out of shower, bathroom door was TORN UP about 4 inches at the bottom and had patches on both sides. Hair dryer didn't work. Mini fridge didn't work. Electric outlet wasn't covered. Floors were sticky when we first walked in Outside the room, the property had trash every where. Pool was disgusting.
