Very nice, clean place. Desk person nice. Had sack breakfasts for everyone laid out. This was supposed to go til 9:30 a.m., but when my wife and I got there at 9:10, there were none available. Not a big deal for us, but maybe for someone else.

Printing center was not working. Plastic bag was left on the smoke detector in my room. Shower leaked at the sliding door so I had to use extra towels to mop up mess. Front desk clerk asked me personal questions about my marital status and made comments about it both during check-in and at check-out. The bedroom itself and location were excellent.

Expensive. Not worth the money. Not clean. Linens were yellow and pillow cases stained. Towels were dirty. Hair in bathroom and on shower wall. Large mold stain on ceiling. Looked like spilled sparkle blue nail polish on carpet. Bathroom door wouldn’t open or shut- it dragged on the ground. Air conditioner was very loud and rattled. We booked it for its “wonderful” review...were very disappointed.
