Bathroom was very small. Couldn’t open the door all the way because it hit the shower curtain rod. The hot tub is broke. All the water pressure comes out of cracks in the floor instead of out of the jets. There is an enclosure around electrical equipment that you can see into from the pool glass that is full of trash and junk painting equipment. Cleaning and support staff are very nice and were friendly. Breakfast was better than other hotels I have stayed at since the COVID pandemic started. Beds were very comfortable and I slept well.
