"Very Nice"
Overall score4.0/ 5
Very nice, clean hotel generally complying with county mask mandates. One complaint for a hotel that I paid over $300 a night for, I would think there would be complimentary coffee and tea throughout the day or at least in the morning. Even the inexpensive hotels on I95 do that. Also breakfast options, while not needed since in downtown, are only items found at Starbucks. Other than that, very nice place.

"Very Average."
Overall score3.0/ 5
Everything was ?okay.? Nothing was outstanding, including the service. On our first night there was a man named Justin (I think) who was fantastic. He was helpful, kind and outgoing. However the other night had a young lady named Taylor who was AWFUL. She was extremely unfriendly and didn't seem to care. It was a shame. Additionally, everything was average. The pull out bed had no blankets, sheets or pillows. The pool was very average. We asked to be near people staying with the wedding and we were not. We had a pack and play for a crib, which was broken. We did not break it, it was broken previously to our use. That was disappointing. As stated, our stay was ?okay.?.

"What an experience."
Overall score3.0/ 5
The hotel is in a great location. However, you can't enjoy the hotel. There were about 30 in our group trying to get together in the lobby and we were told we could not be there. Take it to a room Taylor, the night attendant at the hotel, told us. I'm not sure I understand why you have a lobby area yet you can't sit there with friends. It ruined the entire night. I would never suggest anyone stay there. There are many beautiful hotels in the area. And you are not the least expensive either. It seems this hotel does not like people to gather and have a good time. We were also outside in the pool area and were told we could not be there either. They had to clean the area and made us leave. It was outside. We were not bothering anyone. Again, beware before booking any event at this hotel and thinking you can gather and socialize. You cannot.
