The staff on duty at the desk the night we checked in seemed very eager to please but on the verge of being overwhelmed. He checked the first room we were supposed to get and told me it was clean but smelled of Marijuana, would that be a problem? I explained that it would be a problem so he upgraded us to a suite at no extra charge.

Helpful staff. The couch in the room was worn and looked rather dirty.

Tyler, night desk attendent, was so pleasant and efficient. He greeted me by name each night when I came in. Had two burnt lightbulbs in the room but were fixed next morning. Room was clean but needed to request more towels. Quiet room.

The staff was very friendly, and the room was relatively clean. However, the entire property seemed very run-down and in need of much updating. Our refrigerator did not work and the climate control seemed in need of repair. Locks and doors did not function properly. There were stains on the furniture. For what we paid, we did not get our money's worth.
