6/10 Good

Our stay could have been better, as the building and arrangement of the room was good, big room and kitchen. The big problem was that there were absolutely no room service during the 6 days of our stay, not even when we went out of the room for the entire day, the said they could not for COVID reason (in June 2022...?), so I was obliged to clean my room myself, change the towels every days (we have three kids), ask for towels and bed sheet at the lobby, this is no service at all ! No breakfast as the restaurant was closed due to COVID... In the room next to us, customer was smoking drugs eveydays !!! No one from the hotel told them to stop...

Last leg of a multi-stop business trip
It was a spacious and comfortable room. It was definitely an older property. The surrounding area was not the greatest and was located right off of I-95 and a little loud at times. The breakfast was more of a bagged lunch type of thing. Not great but not bad either. There were not any restaurants within walking distance or that I did not feel safe walking back up to the main road. Door Dash was great though.

I did not like the breakfast in a bag..with all the money that you were paying to stay i think that the breakfast should've been HOT!!!!..not in a bag and COLD!!!!..and we didn't have enough bathroom tissue in the rooms..And the hot water in the kitchen did not get hot so that I could wash dishes l had to heat it up on the stove to get it HOT!!!!..I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND THAT MY FRIEND'S OR FAMILY TO STAY HERE...BUT THE LOCATION WAS AWESOME!!!..

2/10 Poor

Roaches every
Sonesta appear to be great but this suite had an infestation of roaches and other bugs in the kitchen areas and living areas. I notified clerk and nothing happened. The cleark told me I would receive a full refund and it’s been two weeks since May 14th stay. My sister had to leave do to the roaches and find another place to stay that night.

A spacious room for 2 with a apartment sized kitchen and living room. Very comfortable king sized bed with 4 decent sized pillows. A great stay indeed. The only draw back were birds singing around 5:30. I was impressed at how many different songs they sang back to back like they did.

Peaceful Place - Perfect Suite!
Great stay - hotel was almost full but the ladies at the front desk were lovely, making sure they had appropriate accomodations for my booking. They knew I was on a long solo trip and were eager to ensure my comfort. This property was a quiet, peaceful oasis at the end of long stretch of mostly not so great places on same road leading to a very nice corporate center. Don't be discouraged - the Sonesta is worth it, plus the sheriffs office is right across the street!

4/10 Fair

What I requested online is not what I got. The room had weird spots on the floor the furniture was coming apart. The pull out mattress needed to be change from the dirty spots on it.
Looks like blood
