Would not stay here again...
We arrived at 8:15 PM to check-in. Our room was not ready. They said it would be 30 minutes before we could check-in. An hour later at 9:15 PM we got a call that we could check-in. They did give us breakfast and drink vouchers and then paid for parking to help make up for things. The lady at the desk said if we need anything once we're up there to call and they would respond immediately. When we got up to the room, there were no sheets for the pull-out bed so we called down to get some. They said they would be right up. We waited for a little bit but since we needed to get the kids down to bed we just shared the bedding from our bed. 1 1/2 hours later a guy came up at 10:45 banging on the door yelling housekeeping several times. Woke my kids, not happy... An hour after that there were some loud teenagers outside of our room for about 30 minutes, I finally called down again to get someone to come up and get them out of the hallway. The guy did come up right away but started screaming at them, WAY louder than they were. Again, woke my kids up again...The next morning we needed medical tape for one of my kids, and it was in the gift shop. They said it opened at 8 AM. We went down and it said they were closed, come back at 9 AM. So we came down at 9 AM, and then it said sorry we're closed come back at 10 AM, we went back at 10 AM and it said sorry come back at 3 PM. It was clean and in a great area, and staff were as nice as they could be. But just way too many inconveniences.

The hotel was nice and I adored Millie! I could've used more coffee in my room. I only had one regular coffee pod. I had no view and my room was very warm despite turning my heat way down.

Good value for a short stay
Nice property in good condition. The beds are super comfortable and the sliders we ordered from room service were amazing.

I am severely disappointed with this place. Check in was a disaster to put it mildly. We booked 2 rooms. The front desk said at first she had us right by each other. The next second claimed one of the rooms was stolen and the 2nd room was now going to be on another floor. We specifically asked if parking was included in our stay. We were told yes, it was included until 2:00 the following day. The rooms were really small. There was 2 small drawers and no closet in the room. The bathroom was so small the door would hit my 10 year old as she tried to get in. The hotel itself was clean. The restraint was nice. Not worth the hidden costs and awful rooms.
