"Great Staff, aging room."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. The breakfast was typical hotel. The suite was spacious and well appointed. The bathroom was small and tired. No tub. Had to stand in a corner to close the door. Corners were dirty. Shower floor was almost filthy. All the caulking was yellowed and cracking. The floor tile was discolored. The cleaner did a very poor job. Too bad as the hotel is well located with many quality restaurants within walking distance.

04-Jun-2019 Verified Review, stayed from Tue May 28 to Mon Jun 03 2019 at a $134.64 average nightly rate.
"Not Happy"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The hotel was nice. The one thing that I did not like was the fact that my bank card was charged immediately. My plan was to pay cash not use the card I left on file for incidental purposes. When I checked out and paid cash, I was told that the money would be back in my account in four five business days. But I was originally told that the charge was pending and that it was not taken out my account.
