  • 6.0.Good

    Everyone was friendly but prices were misleading. Wifi was only free to members. The menu was extremely limited. Our bed sank to the middle and the pillows were flat.

    Beware of Mold/Mildew

    The room was very nice. Modern updated decor. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. My biggest complaint was the mold/mildew smell coming from the bathroom. By the next morning my allergies were so flared up I had to take a Benadryl. So if you are allergic to mold or mildew I would not recommend staying here.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The property and room were great, and the staff was courteous and helpful. The only thing we didn't like is that someone had clearly smoked cigarettes in our room (not recently, but historically), as the scent was immediately recognizable when we walked in. It did not stop us from enjoying the room, but it could be an issue for other guests.
