  • 6.0.Good

    I had chosen this hotel because they had a free breakfast. Because of the pandemic, breakfast had been cancelled. I didn’t find that out until I arrived. I was left with no breakfast option. Moreover the coffee pot didn’t work. So I started my day completely on empty. I understand why they stopped serving breakfast, but I should have been notified ahead so I could be prepared.

    Staff was great, location and price are fine. The only complaint was that the water in the shower was only lukewarm.

    Too expensive for what you get.

    This place was kind of sketchy and at 1 am someone started smoking pot in the next room. The lady at the front desk was lovely and very professional.

    It was nice, fairly clean... the location while central to the city, was just scary and run down. Also.. the pool was nice, but the hot tub broken and in disrepair was a huge let down.
