Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
We picked the hotel because it had a breakfast and a hot tub. At check in there was a sign stating no breakfast and no pool/hot tub due to Covid. This was very frustrating since their site was not updated with this Information and we have a traveled a lot during this and no other hotel we have stayed at is doing this. The rooms smelled like dirty socks and there was hair all over the floors and counters in the bathroom. The beds had a topper on them that were lumpy. We will never stay there again.

Pet fee was not made clear in booking reservation. Would not have selected this hotel on its price had I known the pet fee would be added. Cold, hard, gray floor. Not a rug anywhere. The least welcoming room I’ve stayed in quite a while.

Clean but some amenities still not available.
All was good besides the pool still being closed and no breakfast, not even a simple grab and go. Would have been handy for those with kids.
