4/10 Fair

Location is great! Room A/C did not work and ceiling lights won’t turn off. Instead of switching rooms and fixing these issues afterwards, they tried to fix the A/C while we were still in the room. Brought big ladders etc…felt like a construction place instead of hotel. They switched me to a new room after the second issue. Friendly staff. Perhaps more training required.
