The location is great and the view from our room on the 8th floor was fantastic. The staff were friendly and efficient. However, the carpet was worn, there was mildew in the shower, the shower didn't drain well and there was duct tape on the door. For the price we paid we expected better quality.

We loved our stay here, and our dog loved it too. So close to the very large off-leash area along the water at Dallas Road. Just wished the restaurant/bar had been open during our stay but realize that everyone has staffing shortages these days.
