The only negative is the last room we stayed in. Underneath the bed hadn't been sweat in what looks like a while, and the floor it self was a little dirty and untouched. Besides that I live this place

Fair 4.0
Business owner/manager was racist and rude. Brianna was the only friendly staff. Patio area closed down. Old furniture and distinctive smell in rooms.
