  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

The lobby is very welcoming and pleasant. The rooms are off a longer corridor and the elevator is halfway down that longer corridor. Tough on little legs to keep up all that distance. The pool is very tiny, even by comparison to other indoor pools in the area. There is no in-room safe -- very surprising in 2020. Breakfast is not included in the room rate.

3/5

  • Liked: Cleanliness, room comfort
  • Disliked: Staff & service

We arrived early and asked about check in and were told they were in process of cleaning our room. We returned three hours later and were treated very rudely by Bruce. At this time it was after 3:30 and the room was still not ready. Instead of taking an apologetic stance, he took an inappropriate tone, made excuses to us and several other patrons.
