"Fine Prior to Covid."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The check in clerk was very professional so there's that. The room was fine for a pre Covid experience. However, had I not been fully vaccinated I wouldn't have stayed there. Didn't seem like they met the protocol standards for the Covid era. Think in these times we need to be extremely cautious.
