Property was very clean and we loved the atmosphere. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The only negative we could say is there was not a lot of information about what the had to offer and where things were located. Other then that, we would definitely stay here again.

Front desk could not reconcile billing discrepancy with Travelocity’s total for which I was responsible. Promised follow up with general manager never occurred and issue was never resolved.

Greetings, We are saddened to hear that there was no follow-up in regard to your concerns with your final bill. Please know that when booking through a third-party site, there may be fees and taxes not quoted in the initial amount. This is stated throughout the reservation process for our guests' convenience. That being said, we would be happy to clear up any confusion you may have. We hope that this didn't detract from your overall experience, and we would love to welcome you back anytime. Sunny regards
