  • 2,0.Poor

    Horrible experience

    Refused to verify Covid compliancy. The employee said, "I can't confirm covid compliancy oir staff uses whayever is sent from the cleaning supply house." No mention of length of time between stays or seals on the door. Mold in room. Bathtub molded and unusable. No overflow on bathtub. No heat in bathroom. Room space heater had a water container that was nearly overrflowing. I am a 78 year old woman it was late at night and I had no energy or idea where else to go. Additionally, they charged me 1 full night for early checkout. I departed at 9:15AM. I was shown a few alternative roms none of which were in any better condition.

    Great location

    My stay was great I love the location. My only complaint was the fireplace didn’t work. When I called the office I was told that it was decorative but it was evident that it had been used many times. He should of just told me it was broken. Other than that a very nice room

    The heater in the room did not work. It was very cold all night. The blankets did not keep us very warm. The shower rod also randomly fell off the wall & we had to figure out how to put it back in place so we could shower.
