We’ve stayed at this hotel several times but this visit was a bit disappointing. There was no room service available and no cleaning during our stay although additional towels could be requested is desired. I’d expect a bit more for the price.

Property was fine. Rooms were big enough and I liked the couch and high floor. Beds were very comfortable. The bathtub was a little scratched up and the conditioner dispenser was full but clogged. Mostly it just didnt have a lot of character or warmth
