We arrived for a month on Feb 24th, Everything was wonderful. Then thing slowly was turning to worst. One thing that did not help was this bartender named Aguill. I always tip good but sometime skip a tip. This Aguill bartender would shake his tip bowl every time I went to get a drink. I though It was just me but everyone had notice him also. I confronted him on it and he gave me a hard time from the rest of my stay. then came the Corona virus alert. We were quarantine for our last 2 weeks. food just got worst same food as lunch for supper. A first was a Hot dog winner soup. wow not cool. we ended our stay hopping to be able to leave. We could not take it anymore. As for the rest of the staff they were fantastic. Waiters were the best and very kind to us. Front desk gave us very good service.

Our check in clerk was miserable, short with us and unfriendly when asked basic questions. Upon check out, we experienced the same. Unless you're in the upgraded area of the hotel, expect a sad little basic room with a questionable looking bathroom/shower - not depicted in the photo gallery of the property.
