    I expected more
    Mold in the shower. Only a shower. Wanted a full bathroom. Small room for almost 400.00 a night. No answer when trying to order room service. Desk had oily residue. Shower ceramic in need of repair. Mattress very uncomfortable. Walls thin, we heard every conversation in the hall and all staff speaking while in bed trying to sleep. I expected more. I doubt I will book here again. Save your money.

    Wouldn’t Stay Again
    Old makeup on bathroom counter. WiFi isn’t included. Outdoor pool was closed in 90 degree weather. Random toilet noise at night. Loud staff slamming doors. Wouldn’t stay again.
