Fair 4.0
Room was dated but manageable. Bathroom wasn't very clean. The AC was broken for all 2 rooms i booked (which was crazy), weren't cold at all and one even started leaking. Called the maintenance and they sent the technician to fix the AC but still the experience was unpleasant. Service was great though, and they gave us cookies for Christmas.

I like the fan of the room as i dont like ac. The bathroom should have a working exhaust when we turn on the lights. Else a bit uncomfortable when we do our business

Lobby area is beautiful and breakfast was great. The rooms however needs to be updated. This property also has smoking floors and the second hand smoke is all over the place.

Very good 8.0
Uniqueness: free parking during my 3 night stay. Need for improvement: toilet flush weak and needs at least three flushing s to get rid if toilet paper. This wastes water 💦 unnecessarily. Staff members friendly. Duty manager and front office manager listened to my story complaining about early deductions from my credit card in violation of the “terms and conditions” listed in Expedia’s booking website.

Staff very friendly and services was good and fast response , is above my expectation , staying one night is not sufficient for me , next time got chance , I will stay longer . My 1st and 2nd day was at another hotel , regretted I didn’t choose this as my first choice . Is ok next time will choose this hotel to stay as my TOP choice . I sincerely would like to thanks Cititel for making my stay unforgettable one with good memories.

The lobby was very spacious and grand so it gives the impression that this is high-class hotel. We don't know the exact measurement but we thought our room was very small, especially compared to the impression that the lobby and the building gives us. We laid out our luggage on the floor and had barely much room to move around. The furniture and colors of the room looks dated. But otherwise, everywhere was clean. Housekeeping always made sure our room is neat and stocked with toiletries and towels. We received a cute note from housekeeping and they left us with a dog made by towels one time. Staff were friendly. Location was close to everything. We had a nice view of the ocean from our window. Wished we had a full-length mirror.
