3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

Our second floor room was nice and large. It was, however smokey and in desperate need of remodeling. The TV was nice. The bed was comfortable, but they are a bit skimpy on the pillows.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. One morning while we were trying to bathe our little girl, our shower handle became stuck in the 'on' position and boiling hot water poured out. We couldn't get it unstuck to save our lives! I called downstairs and in minutes, a kindly maintenance man was able to give it a few good whacks and get it working properly again.

The continental breakfast was okay; waffles, cereal, bagels, etc.

The baby crib is metal and our baby kept getting his little legs stuck in between the slats. We were glad we brought a small pop up, travel crib in case of emergency.
