Staff friendly. Weird, tacky fake waterscape in lobby. Room decor fairly contemporary, new, clean.
Mold/mildew in grout and caulking areas in shower/tub...seemed like bleach couldve easily removed these stained areas....kinda gross and even worse at base where tub met tile floor.
Mildewy, funky smell upon entering room...cranked up heat long enough for burnt lent smell to mask mildew smell...turned ac on and smell tolerable.
Breakfast area packed at 8 am on Saturday morn....breakfast hostess couldnt keep up with stocking eggs and bacon...but nice that eggs and bacon offered along with signature cinnamon rolls and pancake machine. Free us today papers available.
Bed comfy...ample amount of pillows. However, I am light sleeper and hum of mini fridge was a bit loud so I never really slept.
Internet reception for ipad not great, kept getting bumped off.
Ask where to park to best reach room.
Can tell rooms have recently been remodeled and updated....has a Hampton Inn feel and decor.
Convenient to restaurants...major chains + local.
