"The price for the location is Great Female staff is rude."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
I stayed at the hotel twice both times I got kicked out.The first time I booked online when I saw the price I thought it wasnt going to be the the best, I was wrong the size of the room was large me my daughter and fiance stayed there for a week the cleaning crew was pushy and keep saying we was smoking, neither me or my fiance smoke plus my daughter has asthma so we can't even if we wanted to.So the Spanish women staff had a attitude with us and said we had to leave she couldn't even tell us what evidence she had that smoking was coming from the room we was in.the 2nd time it was just me and my daughter my dad booked it for us we stayed there like three days one morning we woke up I had to rush my daughter to the hospital when we got back it was a Caucasian woman now she took the cake she was the worst she had the most nasty attitude I ever seen she also said we had to go it turned out that my dad didn't pay for that day but I asked her can I just pay she told me to get my stuff and leave she threatened to call the police.i ask to speak with the manager. I called and left message he never called back.
