      Depends on what your looking for.

      So if you are looking for a hotel that requires mask use and physical distancing you might want to book a different hotel. They were booked to Capacity. Front desk clerk had to try and find us towels as there was only 1 in the room booked for 3 people. She was able to locate 1 other towel for us. The customer behind us seemed to be having the same issue. The room was clean and they did have an indoor pool that looked nice but with no distancing and no one in the hotel but us wearing masks we did not use it. After 1030pm the noise in the hall quieted down enough for us to sleep.

      Poor and stingy hotel owners.

      Needs repairs badly. Management needs to put such rooms in out of order status. Any good hotel would have comped the room for guest great inconvenience. Bathroom vent not working, Bathroom sink had cracked, flooding the floor. Door frame was loose, it could fall off the wall any time. Only good employees run this place.

      Disappointing

      Carpet stains, dirty sheets rolled up in the closet, lumpy mattress pad that wouldn’t lie flat.
