8/10 Very Good

Could use a little improvement
The room looked clean and sanitized, however, a closer exam produced a smelly mattress, and not-so-clean bathtub. there was power outage for a few hours, so the restaurant on site was closed, but that was not the fault of the hotel. It's a nice property, but the sanitation could use some improvement.
