It was okay. The door to the room was bent so it was difficult to secure. The staff was young but attentive. The sheets were on the light weight side. The shower was amazing. Overall not bad.

We always check for bed bugs at every hotel, and although we didn't find any bed bugs, there were a couple marks on the mattress that were suspect. But we stayed the night anyway and were careful not to put our luggage on the furniture or carpet, just in case. Bed was comfortable. Plumbing worked. AC worked. Front desk staff weren't friendly, but weren't rude. Would've been nice to have complimentary breakfast included, given the price. Close proximity to airport was convenient.

Hi. The staff are great and really helpful. We needed a roll away bed brought into the suite as the sofa bed is TERRIBLE!, The staff who brought it in was extremely helpful and the rollaway bed is a great full size twin bed!, and very comfortable! ( it was not one of those awful fold up type of rollaways, If all BW hotels have this type of rollaway we would always book BW.

Hotel was clean and good but the interiors need a overhaul. Bathrooms especially needs to be worked on, shower was slow and the TV didn't work
