All I wanted to do was reschedule, but was offered no help at all. I was going to keep the reservation and just change the day, but no.

For the price paid, the room is better than expected - Large TV, good size refrigerator, microwave, in-room safe, good size room, plenty of parking, and decent breakfast. Wi-Fi is fast and reliable. I keep the HVAC fan running to provide air circulation and block outside noise. The HVAC causes condensation so the carpet next to it can be damp...
