Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We were never told in advance about the hotel’s room cleaning policy as related to COVID. Our room was therefore not cleaned and the trash cans were literally overflowing. Even after complaining and asking for clean towels no one mentioned that it was OUR responsibility to put the trash cans outside our room. We were also not informed about the additional “facility/resort” fee

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Amenities
The location was great, lots to do in the neighborhood. The pool was great. Staff, especially parking staff was friendly. Our main dissatisfaction was the WiFi. It was terrible, even the tv kept getting interruptions and weak signal. It didn’t seem like there was enough staff - our scheduled cleaning was missed and it took a long time to get trash taken away or get new towels.

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
Very poor customer service. For the price I expected much more. No coffee maker in room or even cups to drink from. We stayed at a hotel close to airport the next night for half the price and service was FAR better! This should be a 100 dollar a night room not the nearly 300 we paid.
