The value for the money is not too great. The rooms are very small, and we had stains on our room floors. The stay is over priced.
Verified Expedia guest review

6/10 Good

I was not pleased at all with this stay. There was no onsite parking left when I arrived, which was not great considering I was recovering from a broken toe. There was a family reunion happening on the premises so people were gathered outside my room, so there was little quiet or privacy. The service was not good - they were understaffed and I waited at breakfast for 15 minutes before getting a server. The front desk asked specifically what time I wanted tea in the morning, and then one morning didn't show up and the next morning came and woke me up 30 minutes earlier than I had asked, and it was my morning to sleep in. Also, housekeeping didn't wear masks, which seems, in this day and age, not best practices. Overall very disappointed.
