(I wonder how clean the silverware was?). Of course the waitress does not even apologize, sure might not be her fault, but she should at least... More

The reviews on here are not too kind and I was actually nervous about my up coming stay. When I arrived it was exactly what I expected,an older hotel in need of renovation.... More

Nothing is more important to us than ensuring our guests have a wonderful stay, Priscilla, so it's simply untrue to say we don't care. If we gave you any impression to the contrary, we owe you an apology. We're happy to speak with you directly about your visit and hear your concerns, so please don't hesitate to reach out directly.... More
