    The room wasn’t ready until an hour after the check in time. I wasn’t expecting to pay $23 for parking.

    2/5

      Online said city view from room and we got a hallway view from window. Room was much smaller than looked in the photos. Room also must had thin walls because you could hear everything and everyone outside the room, didn’t feel like there was much privacy. Shower didn’t really get hot, more like just luke warm. Breakfast was small and limited. Says online that there is parking available but doesn’t mention it’s not part of hotel room cost. Customer service was beyond excellent but everything else was extremely dissatisfying.
