Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Nasty"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Rooms smelled like smoke. Dank and gross place.
(Individual traveler, booked 1 room), from US flag
12-Dec-2021 Verified Review, stayed from Fri Dec 10 to Sun Dec 12 2021 at a $83.99 average nightly rate.
"Rooms were clean and comfortable, no issue with noise."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Would like to see the breakfast opened, I like the convenience.

"Clean and comfortable room."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
A little noisy being next to stairs and couldn't figure out why the toilet was cramped up against the corner but all the staff was friendly and helpful easy access to main routes and lots of restaurants in close proximity.
(Individual traveler, booked 1 room), from US flag
22-Jun-2021 Verified Review, stayed from Fri Jun 18 to Sun Jun 20 2021 at a $109.99 average nightly rate.
"No pool or breakfast as advertised."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Other hotels in the area still had breakfast and the pool was open with reservation time slots. Covid was the answer for not having these amenities, but other hotels adjusted for their guest.

"Unless there’s no other option!"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
This hotel is way over priced for the lack luster service and accommodations. It has outdated everything. The phone in the room doesn't work, the bedding is old and uncomfortable. It advertises a whirlpool which is now covered up by patio furniture. The free breakfast is nasty. The employees do not wear uniforms and look like very unkept. Pay attention to your bill, we prepaid and they still tried to charge us for things. We won't choose this option again.
(Individual traveler, booked 1 room), from US flag
