3/5 Okay

The rooms are a decent size. But they need to be deep cleaned our tub had hairs. Also our tv didn’t work and I told front desk about this and he said he would didn’t it but didn’t fix it. Also, there isn’t breakfast due to covid but there isn’t anything on the website that says there isn’t any.

3/5 Okay

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
The check-in was seamless. The seem eco friendly because I didn’t get a receipt. The actual room was ok, bed was actually FIRM and the tub looks like the only thing they haven’t replaced. The AC did not work. When we called about it the continued to repeat the same instructions that me and my husband followed. It would cut on for a few mins and cut back off. So the tub and the ac are the only complaints: during a heatwave the ac should have been crucial but since the windows open (rare in hotels) it was manageable since we checked in late and plan to be gone in a few hours.
