6/10 Good

Good and bad
The front desk staff service upon arrival was horrible. The individual made no eye contact and I as very short with his responses made us feel extremely uncomfortable being there as if we did not belong there and when I asked him if the convenience store at the hotel sold Dramamine his response was something like I don’t know you should check instead of saying I don’t know but can look into it for you. No greeting at all and just said give me you ID and credit card. At check out, service was outstanding. Linda was kind and professional and took the time to interact with me, additionally she heard my concerns from the previous night and offered free parking. Linda was understanding and her costumer service reminded me of how great a hotel experience should be. Linda, thank you for taking pride in what you do and for caring about how you make others feel. We need more Lindas in the world.
