  • 8.0.Very good

    Nice size room, storage, location and friendly staff. Next time I will check the room before settling in. OLD mattress and dirty sheets on the sofa bed. Stains, nut shells and french fries on the sheets. Hotel clerk apologized. I had to go downstairs to pick up the linen. Microwave was dirty with rice, crumbs and crusty food everywhere. Of course I cleaned it. 1 drinking glass and 1 juice glass for 2 guests. A child’s knapsack under the sofa bed. An earring on the bedroom floor. Patches in wall need to be repaired. Dishwater overflowed with suds. Single chair needs to be thrown out or upholstered. Screw on floor lamp fell off. At least 3 anti-bacterial dispensers were empty.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Disappointing

    Parking and location was fine. Staff were very friendly. However, the place felt very dim and dingey. Our room was not in good shape. The drawers and cabinets in the kitchen area were broken. The upholstery on the couch and chairs had gross looking stains on them. We killed two bugs within 10 minutes of getting into our room. It just felt dirty. The mattress was very hard and uncomfortable.

    GREAT STAY

    Check-in was easy and very fast. Any question I had, the ladies are always accommodating. My room was bigger than I expected and cleaned/sanitized very well. I wasnt worried about CoVID transference at all. Free laundry, free gym. They have family games, dvds, and cooking appliances (crackpot, toaster oven, etc.) they lend out, for free, to any guest that may want to use them. Wonderful experience.
