would stay with company, different location
The hotel itself is gorgeous. The staff is wonderful, when you can find them. Check-in went well, so I thought. The staff let themselves in our room as my son was trying to sleep. Trying to explain that there system did not have us checked in and she wanted to make sure the room was clean and ready for the next guest. That left me with an uneasy feeling. What if we weren’t in the room? Would we had some of our personal belongings stolen from us? There was no safe in the room. But this happened 2 hours after we had already checked in. There was also an unwanted hitchhiker in the bathroom, a roach. We kept all of our bags off the floor. With the hope that we did not bring any carriers home. Bag breakfast was ok. During checkout time there was no one at the desk. I stood for 10 minutes before I decided to just leave. After a few minutes, I did call to make sure they were aware that we had checked out.

good
They upgraded my room for free. Only issue was it smelled like smoke. Was clean and in order otherwise. When my car battery was dead in the morning the front desk had some jumper cables and helped me jump my car.

First choice to stay...
This is a newer hotel and we have stayed here several times. Nice location, great hotel as far as cleanliness, comfort, etc. The staff is excellent! Only negative this time was no maid service. When I asked about it (didn't know if it was a COVID thing) and told them I didn't have a 'do not disturb' sign on my door, they got me towels, but initially only gave me 2. I had to ask for more. The staff was good about it, I just wish my room would have been clean.
Rebecca, us2 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
This hotel was extremely clean and so comfortable. The only complaint I had was that the heat was on in the room, so after leaving Adventureland, being hot and exhausted we walked in to a really hot room.

Great place, great staff!
The place the clean, and safe. The front desk employee, Toni, was WONDERFUL! She was so kind, super hard working, and in this day of Covid she made me feel safe.
