The Good - the staff, especially Valerie and Ashley were extremely polite and helpful with our needs. The women making breakfast on 6/24 were so kind and helpful to my 6 year old grandson.Breakfast choices were plentiful. Proximity to the park is fantastic.
The Bad - the shuttle does not run between 1 and 4 in the afternoons - I wish that had been posted on the website. Neighborhood leaves much to be desired. Bathroom needs to be repainted. The lumpiest pillows I have ever slept on. Elevators need to be cleaned - both floors and walls.
The Ugly - had reserved adjoining rooms and after our return from the Park - one room had a dirty sock (belonging to no one that was in our party) sitting in the middle of the room and no towels in that bathroom. The other room had no drinking cups or coffee cups and the toilet paper in the bathroom was on the floor with the "spring loader" under the sink against the wall.
The windows were not very clean - very streaky.
