Unfortunately Not The Quality We Expected
Very disappointed in the breakfast selection. For this price I expected some hot choices. Not even toaster waffles. Water pressure in shower was not good either and apparently even though checkout is 11, we were advised that the water would be turned off at 9am for repairs. Just not a pleasant stay for us. Won't stay again.

Nice hotel- no elevator
I am more and more surprised by the places with no elevator. So when we get there we have to request ground floor. Just because someone uses crutches doesn't mean they want a handicap room, but that's where they put you if you tell them we can't do stairs.

4/10 Fair

OMG I cant believe they charged us for this!
Our room was dark dirty and gross. I cleaned the bathroom before we could use it, still drink splatters on door frame and down door. Stains on the sheets. No usb charger plugs, there was however a phone jack plug in case we were carrying a land line. Asked where to charge and was pointed to a common area. Guest next door had hookers in and out all night and morning. and then loudly called his wife and told her he slept great! Breakfast was a joke!! Not one hot item offered. This is a very dated and dirty facility. Don't know if i have ever been this disappointed. Even when I went to desk for a receipt and stated that this was a very disappointing stay the front desk supervisor just looked at me. Not one word! No questions, no apologies, No anything! Just looked at me! I will spread the word!
