Sherry at the front desk was amazing when we arrived. Excellent customer service. She got us checked in quickly, explained the hotel property, and even called up to the room shortly after to see how we were and if we needed anything!

Very friendly and helpful front desk staff. Newly refurbished. Did not love the location - at the end of a street and by an empty lot. Two roaches in our room and few stains on sheets and towels not great

Disliked: Cleanliness
5 roaches found in dining area. In addition to being disgusting we had to carefully pack up our stuff to make sure we didn’t bring them home from hotel. However the hotel has good service and provided a refund for first night and a different room. However there were other issues like a loud fire alarm sound when staff is doing their laundry which prevented us from sleeping
