Joseph, us1 night business trip
Good 6.0
Nice hotel, too minimal
We were disappointed with the lack of microwave (though we could go downstairs in the lobby and use the communal microwave during a global pandemic), and the lack or a bar fridge (first hotel ever that I stayed in that didn't have one) and the beverages that I brought got warm, an ice machine would have even done it. Sad that there was no room service as we came to get away for a stay in night. Please consider getting netflix too, glad I brought my computer so we could watch it on that.
Marsha, ca1 night trip
Fair 4.0
We left and went elsewhere.
Hotel was clean and beautiful however the rooms were very small which ive gotta way bigger for the same price bracket. Also if you drive a light light duty pickup you cant fit into their parking garage and will be charged for permit for oversize parking in a creepy location. Also during my stay i was given my oversize parking permit and later that evening when i went to park there was no spots avaiable and i was left to find parking on my own in another location and walk to the hotel. The shower in my room didnt seem to stay on for some reason (i had to turn it back on every minute) and i couldnt get it to maintain a temperature, it kept fluxating between hot and cold. We ended up checking out early and checking into a different hotel.
