When I got there he refused us . Then he side get out .

Stayed 1 night in Nov. 2019


The place is under reconstruction. I arrived at about 1:30 for an early check in and the contractor was unloading supplies. They knocked off around 2 or so, and hadn't started by 8 (the time I left), so noise wasn't an issue. Parking was miserable - I had to carry all my gear (and there was a lot this trip) in through the crates, shipping containers, and the Bobcat. My room was pre-remodel. Carpet was bare at the entrance, and had been badly patched. Faucet on the sink was loose. Before reserving, check and see if the remodel is done.

The picture of the hotel is very misleading. The building in the picture was completely gutted. The entire property was under rehab. The room we stayed in was not completed, but everything was new and very clean. I was NOT informed of the $50 deposit fee either. I won't stay again, or use Expedia.
