Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Friendly staff, clean room, excellent breakfast bar."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Friendly staff, clean room. Will certainly come back. Breakfast bar was excellent.

"Beautiful"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
ce, spacious rooms and the facility is set up as well as possible for handicapped accessibility. The original design makes it mildly problematic, since the only elevator is in the far end of the building, but they put handicapped parking spots and centered the access rooms around it. Rooms were also clean and well maintained.

"Horrible not clean room."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
The bedspread had cigarette holes, the no smoking room stank. .There was no sign it had been COVID cleaned. everwhere else I stayed had white bedspreads. Way over priced and in a terrible neighborhood. No real place to walk a pet. If I hadn't driven so far that day I would have left. The hotels on the otherside of the street appear much better. Never stay here.

"Great Bar"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Our only complaint was the gym, it was dirty and most of the equipment did not work. You would be better off without a gym.
