I was frustrated by a blind booking engine that placed me here as I do not think that this property is a 3.0 star EVER.
That being said -- I consider a star system on the basis of Luxuries and not cleanliness -- but it seems in modern parlance - it is meant to reflect good vs. bad or clean vs. dirty.
All said - this property was surprisingly tolerable. The bed was small but acceptable. The open area of the room nice and a large refrigerator. It was clearly a refinished room - I cannot speak for other rooms.
Prior reviews had my caution flags up for this property. Persons has references poor staffing, safety concerns, limited parking, etc. For my experience, the Staff were extremely polite at check-in and sufficiently polite at check-out.
The 1st floor room was not in a position near the pool that some might desire - but for us it constituted more noise and more limited privacy
Parking is tight at night which ads to stress -however the front desk re-assured me that it was not fully booked and that it would not likely be an issue --- Did I change my plans for my hotel? Yes I did. I came back earlier to avoid a potential parking issue.
In any case - I think its an acceptable 2.5 --- but that it should never be classified as a 3.0
Also - skip the free breakfast. Its free for a reason and a stretch to call it breakfast.
