Everything was really nice but one problem. When we walked into the room, there were crumbs on the floor so the person vacuuming missed the entrance to the room. Other than that, the rest of the room was clean and nice. The continental breakfast was good and the person in charge kept cleaning up the breakfast areas which was nice.

The staff are friendly and helpful and the room was clean but the bathroom has some issues. The hand held shower head is set at about 4 feet high and is not adjustable so it makes for an awkward one handed shower. The floor and ceiling tiles were cracking and crumbling and there was a mysterious black substance in between... More
