4/5 Good

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

My only complaint would be the mattress. My husband and I had to sleep in the middle otherwise I would roll into him. Obviously they have old mattresses and have never flipped and rotated them, it made for a long night of no sleep.

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

    The staff at the front desk were extremely professional and friendly. However, the common area where the only microwave was was not very clean. There were also young boys running around on our floor and the floor above us all night. They played on the elevators as well which was very disturbing.
