For whatever reason, their response to Covid-19 was that the front desk was not manned. For anything you needed, including check-in, you had to call a number and then wait around. When we arrived, I actually held the door open for the check-in person who was walking out but she didn’t even acknowledge us and say that she would be back. Called and got voice mail. The next day, had to call again because both our keys quit working. Called, got voice mail again. Front desk person re-processed the keys. No comment, no “sorry”, nothing. Seemed truly annoyed that she was inconvenienced. On top of all that, the room was quite dirty with places on the night stands sticky enough to actually tear off pieces of paper towels sitting on them. Cannot recommend this facility to anyone.
