5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Despite COVID-19, the staff was very nice and helpful. There was no breakfast offered at this time. Also, the person will have to get their own towels or change in bedding. Despite that it was a great stay.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Quite a while checking in, even though only 3 guests in line. Only one staff member, and she was a little slow. The bed in the room is very high off the ground - almost need a step stool to climb in bed, which seems silly Fridge in room is nice, as is coffee maker. WiFi works well.
