    AC wasn’t not working. MOLD ON ROOMS. Terrible customer service, lady with glasses working in the front was absolutely disrespectful and rude. Didn’t want to hear what we as the CUSTOMERS had to say. DO NOT STAY HERE.

    I must say that the staff & the internet was top notch and the bed was comfy but it stops there! You can obviously tell they are in the middle of renovation so maybe that will change soon. We heard absolutely no outside noise unless we walked out the door, so they have done well there as it was pretty packed for some of our stay!

    Will come back

    Good location. Good value for the money. Love the memory foam mattress in 119. Manager told me they are putting in all rooms. Like the changes they are doing. Wish they had more choices for to go breakfast.
