    The morning staff is great but the evening staff are less friendly.

    The fact there wasn't enough blankets for a room with 2 beds. It was really hard getting hold of the staff on the phone when I called to modify my reservations a week earlier. I tried to call like 5 different times.

    Friendly staff, great location, pool and spa

    Whole building and facility looked really run down. The faucets in the bathroom and tub were rusted and gross. The hotel room looked out into a gross run down neighborhood

    Clean and comfortable room, satisfying breakfast

    As the hotel is near the highway, it's so noisy. I wake up several times at night because of the sirens.

    Girl at front desk was sneezing left & right. I tried to use another credit card then originally booked with and she said it wasn't accepted. They didn't have a computer available for guests to use, and I'm pregnant & was tired. I used own laptop to transfer funds. Then the room key she gave us didn't work in the door & we had to go back to the office & switch it out. Very poor customer service. The room was old, grimy, smelled like bleach. Not very welcoming. The bedspread had stains, as well as the towels. I didn't want to lay or sit on top of the bed. Yuck!

    Nothing.

    The place is a dump. Everything is filthy, you cant sit on the furniture or walk on the carpet barefoot. Cockroaches are apparently an amenity here. The beds sag and if you look at the box springs you can really, really be disgusted. Staff is super unfriendly. Stay elsewhere.

    Got a lower rate at check in than my reservation rate.

    Free WiFi didn't work, TV remote didn't work, shower head dribbled vice spray, heater so loud I couldn't hear the TV.
