2/5 Poor

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Amenities
Overall, a disappointing experience. After we checked in, the staff discovered that the room hadn’t been cleaned, and left us standing in the hallway for five minutes before we went down to the front desk. The room itself had a horrible layout, and there was a confusing shower that required five minutes of exploration to get hot water. The room was also noisy and stuffy. Not recommended.
