8/10 Very good

The building and surroundings were clean. The staff was friendly, readily available, and helpful. The gym is not up to standard, only one machine is working (treadmill). There was no pool, which was a bit disappointing. The daily buffet breakfast was a good bonus, but it did became repetitive after a few mornings. If you are a super clean individual, buffet breakfast is not for you. Some patrons will leave the serving utensils at the side of the plate that there are suppose to place them on; also, leave the food open. There is always a staff member there to check on the buffet area at intervals, but they are not fast enough for some of the patrons. Overall, it was a fair experience.
