    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
    • Disliked: Amenities

    The beds was so uncomfortable and felt like it hadn’t been changed for decades. I had to attempt to sleep with a bed that felt like it had no padding and huge springs poking in to my body. The pillows were rock hard like the beds and very thin. We had a very bad night sleep.
