    Great all around weekend escape

    Exceptional 10.0
    Excellent service, great amenities
    The outdoor hot tub was my far our favorite part! The staff were very friendly and helpful. Dinner was delicious, although the burger was way overcooked for my tastes. The bed in our room was wonderfully comfortable. My advice would be to ask for explicit directions from the staff when trying to find the pool/outdoor hot tub.

    us2 night trip
    Good 6.0
    The Essex is a nice place. I have only 2 complaints one, they charge $150 to have a dog with you and dog owners all know that when you travel with a dog, you do not get the best room in the place, so the idea of having a B grade room and paying full price and then on top of it $150.00 for the dog is a bit over the top. I can see $50, but $150.00 is extreme. 2- With Covid, they used precaution by not cleaning the rooms BUT when I asked for new towels they literally leave them ON the carpet outside your door, not even in a bag Talk about gross and germs. That to me was just gross, even without Covid. When I commented to the front desk they agreed it was unsanitary and sent new towels in a bag and then the next day again left them on the floor with no bag. If they are concerned with plastic and the environment then spend the few cents more for biodegradable bags or paper bags. Carpets are disgusting so the idea of using a bath towel off the floor is just, again, GROSS
