    keep looking
    front desk lady was peasant, spent about an hour and a half in the lobby, that's all we can say positive about the visit

    We waited over 5 minutes for someone to come to the front desk to check us in. I asked 3 times, at various times of the day, for my sons room to be close to our room and he was 2 floors up. People were not friendly nor helpful. it was very hard to get on and stay on wi-fi.

    Worst hotel ever!!
    This was by far my worst experience ever in a hotel. The bathroom walls, baseboards and floor was the filthiest I have ever seen in a hotel, covered in mold, dirt and who knows what else. The previous visitors left open food in the refrigerator. Front desk clerks lacked knowledge and professionalism, and were incompetent to say the least. They had no idea how to process a customer using a third party company therefore I was double charged. When I checked in the clerk asked for a credit card I do not own, and once I reminded her I prepaid through she had no idea how to serve me. She finally asked me for the card I used so she could charge a $10 incidental fee, but she couldn’t get it to work. So hours later that evening when another clerk came in they called my room requesting I come to the front desk. This clerk also asked for my card and after I handed it to her she asked if I already paid, so I told her I reserved the room through and prepaid the entire visit. I asked her please do not double charge me and she responded she was just checking to make sure I paid therefore I would only be charged the $10 incidental. When I checked out the receipt showed a bill for $360.10, so I asked that clerk why I was double charged. Her response was that’s how the system prints the receipts but I would only be charged the $10 incidental. Two days later my credit card was charged the entire $360.10, so I contacted my credit card company and the hotel.
