Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
I did not stay there. After making reservations I received an email from the location that they were unable to process payment on my cc. I then phoned the location and after numerous attempts they were still unable to process the payment so I was told by their staff that she would have to cancel my reservation because of this issue. I made reservations elsewhere however this location ended charging my card as a no show.
