Thank you for trouble free pleasant stay. I had an excellent housekeeper Margareta Baltazar. She helped me feel comfortable. I always had a clean room when I came in tired each day and coffee supplies. This is the best pet friendly hotel. My dog was treated as a special guest also. Thank you. I look forward to my next stay.

Positive: The staff here was very nice and it was overall nicer than I thought it would be for the price we paid.

Needs improvement: The room had cosmetic issues (small hole/dings in walls, a bit shabby-looking) and bathroom wasn't in great shape or that clean (hair on floor that wasn't ours, torn shower curtain, greyish-white bathroom towels with odd spots on them). The shower was also super loud and took a while to get hot. We were on the second floor and you can hear EVERYTHING above you. The breakfast was not good. Two of the toaster sides weren't working, orange juice was out, bananas looked old. I had a bagel that was awful and there was nothing to put on it but jelly since I'm vegan. Adding some peanut butter packets would be nice, just as a suggestion.
