4/10 Fair

would only give it a 2 rating, could be 5 if updat
room was very out dated, the drapes would not close, the bathroom tiles were all moldy, the toilet would not flush, the bathroom sink would not drain. old analog TV. The coffee maker did not work. needs a lot of TLC. The people were very fine, very cordial, but the rooms need a lot of revamping. It is in a very lucritive location, and looks like it used to be quite high end, just never kept up.

Just Adequate
Our stay was fine. The continental breakfast was not what I was expecting. I expected more, at least cold cereal. The room was adequate, but in need of updates.
