"Construction"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Let me start off the front deskl staff was very pleasant and helpful. What we didn't know is that there is construction taking place at the hotel. After a very long day of football camp and three lax games traveling three hours, we arrived at the hotel to see a lift out front by the entrance and some caution tape. After checking in we went across the street to grab dinner and returned approx 815. As my son and I approached the front entrance the lift started to go up and we questioned how we were going to proceed as the area was not very secure. We walked through the alley and did not go under the awning as I was afraid something might fall. We proceeded to our room to settle in, as we had more games in the morning. We heard the lift rise again and saw out our window the construction employee right outside, he proceeded to begin working at 830pm! It would have been helpful to know that construction was taking place and that they would be working right out our window as we were exhausted from the long day. Also, I let the staff know that inside the shower enclosure was quite nasty with mold. The gentleman at the front desk stated he would let housekeeping know. It was very disgusting!
