There was a barking dog that barked continuously during the day when left alone. This made my stay less than enjoyable. I contacted the desk both days but they said they couldn't locate the occupants. I will not return

Even though this was a non-smoking property our suite smelled very strong with cig smoke. When the ac kicked on it was bad. The carpet through out the property was dirty. Lots of noise at night, kids running up and down the hallway. A group of kids out playing basketball at 11:30/1 am at night.

Non-Smokers Beware!!!

When making my reservation I requested a non-smoking room.  The room given to me was obviously a smoking room as soon as we stepped into the room the odor was so bad/strong we could not walk into the room. The front desk said the hotel was fully booked and they  would not assign a new room even though it was only 5PM. They offered to bring an air purifying machine to "clean" the air. After they removed the machine the odor was bearable but still bad.  Also, the rug had a wet spot that never dried. Luckily, we only spent one night.
