    Worked Well

    Worked out well. Pretty close to UR but not walkable. Breakfast is different because of covid but if you get there early its OK. Breakfast ends at 930 which is going standard. There's some options to microwave if need if ur starving when you arrive. Pool was closed which we understood to be a state law.

    Room was clean pool was good. Only thing was there so no space. The audacity to put a desk and chair with barley two inches of space to move the chair.

    Not bad, not great

    The hotel has great access to the interstate. It's beginning to show its age. Carpets were a little dirty, the bathroom didn't have a fan and we ran out of hot water. Furniture is older. It serves its purpose.

    Amazing pool!

    Staff were awesome, super friendly & helpful! Our room was really good c/ the exception of a few flaws, 1 of the beds base was broken & made clunking noses getting on/off it & there was something spilled on the rug by 1 of the beds that wasn't cleaned up. The other problem was no fault of the properties but there were other guests in the hallway between 1130pm & midnight who were exceptionally rude, yelling, running & stomping past our room. Very aggravating when trying to sleep. The pool was AMAZING, so warm, we enjoyed it very much!! All in all a great stay!
