Definitely not the Ritz
It was good, for a overnight stay. The staff was excellent and took care of the needs we expected. There were three of us traveling. The one room suite had plenty of space for us, but many features were dated and damaged. The sofa bed didn't have linens ready for it, the hair dryer wasn't working, the cushions for the sofa, as well as the curtains had rips in them. It was inexpensive for a suite, but I guess you get what you pay for.

Was disappointed that they would not allow us to use our military discount. Hallways were kind of dirty. Breakfast grab and go was disappointing.

Nice clean room. I don’t recall asking for an accessible room but that’s what I got. Very spacious! My only complaint: the fitness room was being renovated. Also there’s no breakfast…
