3/5 Okay

Travelled with group
Stayed in the Suite for 3 nights .. weather was hot during the daytime like 80 degrees outside and they don’t have air conditioning so the room is very warm during the day for the price a night the room should have air options .. It’s kinda tacky the way they leave the wires and cable box just hanging from the Television and the fold out couch that sleeps 2 is very very uncomfortable
