The hotel is run down and not clean at all. Our room smelled liked someone has been smoking in it and the lights kept flickering. More so, whenever we called the front desk from our room, we would have to call literally 10-12 times before someone answered. The rooms are dingy and nothing seemed to be kept clean. Our coffee cups within our room had lipstick stains. The iron board was all ripped up. Although the area it is in is conveniently located, I would find a different hotel next time.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The property lost my initial booking from the 3rd party. Had to make a new reservation. I was charged twice for property fees. Food on top of the gate was horrible and over priced appetizers for a view. I booked with a river view. I was told that’s not what I booked even though I did. The spa was dirty. The service felt rushed. Extremely disappointed.
