Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Dining options nearby were extremely varied. Having the train next door was a problem at times during the night. Other than that the building was quiet.

Valet parking for $35/day with in and out privileges. Walkable to typical mall type shops, a Starbucks, Yoshi’s, and other eateries. Next door to Scott’s and Kinkaids. A nice bowling/beer garden establishment with many TVs for sports viewing pleasure. Rooms nice. No funky smell. Beds and pillows comfortable. Linens clean with daily housekeeping. Air conditioning works. One complaint, if anything, super thin walls. You can hear routine conversations. Masks were required via county mandate for all indoors. Awesome stay and will visit again.

2/5 Poor

Travelled with family, Business traveller
First, we had reserved a king size bad, the room they gave us had queen size bad. Second, and more importantly, we requested top floor room, they didn't have any. The people above us walked around all night, and the floors being so flimsy made us feel and hear everything. No good sound insulation here at all, we basically couldn't sleep well.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Amenities
We were told we were getting a waterfront room - it was a view of the parking lot with a peak of the bay. Windows were very dirty. For some reason, they gave us an ADA room - no bathtub and shower head was installed low for someone in a wheelchair. They charge $75/night for amenities but there aren’t any. Restaurant was closed. No food or drinks available on property. Mattress were uncomfortable - felt like they were plastic. Not impressed.
