Disliked: Staff & service
The lady at the front desk was quite grumpy and even rude when we tried to check in. We had to wait well after check in time to get checked in. She claimed the rooms weren’t ready yet but you would think that by 3:00 (check in time) they would all be ready. I requested my room to be cleaned one of the days I was there, got back around 4:30 pm and it still wasn’t done.

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
The first room we were placed in, room 114, had sewer gas coming through the wall. The room also had a bed with holes/gaps in the mattress. We were moved to another room which was satisfactory. The facilities person was very nice and cordial. Please read your card that your key comes in! There was a sticker (which I did not initially read) that’s states if you want your room serviced, you must notify the front desk. Having 4 adults in one room, returning late to find an I serviced room was a big surprise. The gentleman at the front desk, who pointed to the small label on the key card, was a little rude, like it was my fault that the room had not been serviced. He did provide clean towels and wash clothes. The breakfast was above average; just wished they would have had a waffle machine. With the exception of the room with sewer gas leaking through the wall, it was a nice place to stay.

My room was average. Upon taking a shower the water didn't go down the drain so I had to take a shower in standing water. The shower rod had previously been broken, yet repaired poorly so the shower curtain would only close halfway.
