Loved the vibe and cleanliness! The only problem we had was the AC didn’t work very well. They accommodated us by switching us rooms. The AC still wasn’t great, but better. I would Definitely recommend this hotel.

I arrived at the hotel a couple of hours early and the staff was able to let me check in early. It was a weekend, and rather crowded. I was impressed by the effort! - The room was nice and very clean, which in this day and age I truly appreciated! The pool was still open, but groups of people had to reserve it for half hour segments daily in order to use it and minimize the spread of germs. The exercise room was closed. I didn't care for the complimentary food served at breakfast buffet, but the coffee and service was good. (The addition of fresh fruit to the buffet is recommended!) The staff was efficient, wore masks, and were pleasant.

Over all stay was okay. However, Upon arrival to the room we noticed that the floor didn’t appear to have been vacuumed by the left side of the bed. We had to request regular coffee for the Kuerig one morning because it wasn’t refilled. The next morning we were given two hair conditioners instead of one shampoo, one conditioner. The lotion appeared to have already been used, as the seal was broke. The last morning when I got in the shower I noticed that the hand towels and wash clothes were replenished but only had one clean towel. I liked the location of the hotel, was close to everything.

Absolute worst! The rooms smell horrid not to mention how outdated they were. The sheets were stained and big infested. The staff attempted to make it right, but after the second room we were moved to also had stained sheets and what looked to be bugs/ eggs we were done!!!!! Also, the hotels pool/ Covid policy is ridiculous after waiting hours for the pool we come to find a random wire hanging from the pool,The only positive about the hotel was the restaurant.

Great visit. This hotel provides a full hot breakfast using appropriate precautions for Covid, not just a cold "grab & go" bag. It also has a restaurant on site that is reasonably priced and comfortable. Room was clean and well appointed. Location is convenient to shopping and nearby restaurants. Staff was courteous and helpful. Will stay here again on our next trip to the area.
