2/10 Poor

DO NOT STAY HERE
I checked in on Friday and left my bags inside for a conference swiftly. I came back at 10:45 and pulled the covers back only to find dirty frayed sheets. The TV as you can see in the photos didn’t work and they had the cable box balancing on top of the mounted TV. I called for service and they couldn’t fix the TV and brought new Dirty sheets that smelt like a stinky old mans armpit. I complained and absolutely no progress the next day. I could not leave because all the rooms were booked up everywhere during the conference. The worst part is … it must happen a lot because the service manager acted like it was no big deal. Unbelievable! The floors were also sticky and gross.

6/10 Good

I wouldn't go there again
Best part: beds were very comfortable! Worst part: some amenities not replenished and had to call twice to get them. There was hair on top of a bath towel. Staff were adequate, but seemed unprofessional in their attire and how they conversed with other staff putting our check-in process on hold. Cheap furnishings seems a bit tired. NO restaurant nor bar in hotel nor in immediate vicinity.
