    Only problem was our GPS could not direct us correctly so had a hard time finding the hotel and the parking entrance was narrow and very steep.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Room accommodations were less than ideal.

    The coffee maker did not work. Ask the front desk to check the coffee maker. It appeared that someone came to check the coffee maker, used up all of the guest coffee; coffee maker still did not work. The TV signal was very poor. Could not watch TV as the signal was out most of the time. It was difficult to sleep because the heat made a loud noise when it continually came on automatically. My stay in the room was disappointing.

    Overall a decent hotel

    Overall the hotel and room was decent-clean, friendly staff, comfortable beds. Negatives- shower head adjustments were minimal and what was available was like stinging needles or a single jet stream, vanity was too tall and toilet too short, DirectTv didn't work properly, toilet paper holder in a bad position and the metal cover was pointless, $18 per day for parking is RIDICULOUS!! We parked on the street instead. Overall however I would still recommend this hotel.
