The staff was slim but really friendly and helpful. The hotel was not clean. We went to two different rooms and settled. There was mold and surfaces not cleaned. Not a good experience. Won’t stay again.
Sticky substance on the nightstand
Mold in the closet
Vending was absent and ice was broken.

Too loud, too late
I reserved the room for my daughter and family to stay is for a family funeral. Check-in time was 3:00. They went to check in at 5:30 and there were no clean rooms. We went back at 7:30 and there were still no clean rooms. Obviously a staff problem. The woman at the desk did all she could. We finally got a room for at 8:30. The hotel has a bar with a THUMPING bass. This could be heard all over the hotel until the wee hours. Definitely will not be staying here again.

Worst hotel experience ever!
Check in was at 3 showed up at 7 room wasnt ready. Was told to come back in 10-15 minutez, came back in 30 and room atill wasnt ready. Waited another 15 minutes, big surprise still wasnt ready. Was offered 2 different options of rooms to accommodate neither was good but ended up taking a double full bed handicap instead of the original double queen. Had to have maintenance work on toilet and tv within first hour!
