    Keep looking for sure

    Owners are really uneducated, especially with running a hotel but also common sense. They give you 30 minutes extra for late check out.. The sheets had brown stains all over them, mainly the bottom fitted sheet that you sleep on. The comforter had stains and smelled weird so we threw it off the bed. They called 4 times and housekeeping knocked 3 times in the span of 11:30-11:35. All due to me packing bags rushing to get out and being 5 minutes later than they wanted. Also, on the phone when I called for late check out she stated 11:30 or 11:45 because if your any later than 12:00 pm then they charge for an extra day.. These people are a joke and so is their hotel. DONT stay here.

    Floor was dirty

    The tile floor was very dirty! It was gray tile meant to look like wood, it hide the dirt so it looked clean but it felt gross. We dripped water on the floor and when we wiped it up the white napkin was black. The beds were really hard as were the pillows. The hot water was also very slow and it was hard to figure out how to adjust the temp in the shower. The woman who checked us in was very nice!!

    Even if they mentioned free breakfast in the web site while you book your place, they DO NOT serve breakfast which is not cool at all. They need to remove that misinformation from everywhere. This misinformation costed me 1 and half hour of my time which was important for me and had to reschedule my day. Covid-19 cannot be the excuse for that. If other hotels can provide breakfast, then this hotel can too.
