1 out of 5
Room didnt look like what the pictures showed. We had no hot water in the shower when we told staff they responded with you can move to another hotel if you are not satisfied. We stayed for 6 nights and pur room wasn't cleaned one time during the whole stay. We had to ask for new towels. Kuerig coffee in lobby was $2 per cup and cup was only half full. Staff was very rude. WAY TO OVERPRICED FOR THE CRAPPY HOTEL AND STAY! Wouldn't recommend anyone to stay here.
