The property was fine. However while checking someone backed into our car while it was in under the front canopy. The staff was not helpful. We asked if they could look at the security camera footage to see who might have hit the car and possibly get a tag number. We were told no at first and then told there was know footage due to construction. Imagine my thoughts when I was told the property did not have security. Also on one of the days our room was not cleaned (a 4 day 3 night stay) . When I mentioned it to the staff they it was a consistent problem. Again not an answer. All in all very disappointed.

For the cost, I was highly disappointed. The room was not clean when we arrived. There was a half empty bottle of wine left in the refrigerator and trash in the trash can, I assume, from the previous guest. We stayed three nights and the second day, the maids came to clean, but only left new towels, didn’t even make the bed! The “clean” towels smelled a little funky. The breakfast was tasteless and bland. The staff was friendly ot and the parking ample, even though they charge $10 per day for parking, which is ridiculous when you pay $360 per night for the room.
