2/5

We arrived to the immediate neighbors smoking with thier door open. The smoke was coming in through under the door so we placed pillows on the door - There was a vacant room beside us which would have been far better under the circumstances. Vehicles next door to us driving in and out all night and car alarm going off at 1:10am . It was a really bad night and I had two small children with me. The service at the desk was excellent - but it has made me reconsider staying again.
