Never again
Front desk was rude, never dealt with two people so rude. Asked for a late checkout but was told no, just like that, not even checking status of rooms. Asked to change rooms was told no because they were sold out of my type of room. Again, not even looking at the computer. Guy tells me to "put yourself in my place". Well, I'm not in his place and I won't stay here again. Not enough parking so if you get there late, be prepared to look for a space elsewhere or park illegally. Hotel is pet friendly so we had a barking dog in room next door. And finally, we came home one night to find a turd floating in the toilet. Even after the housekeeper had to reach over it to replace the towels.. Maybe it was someone on our group that didn't flush, but common, they could have flushed if it wasn't thiers... Too many less expensive hotels in the area with much better features for much less money
