Very good 8.0
Studio Style
Hotel was clean and room was ok the bed is more on the small size. The hallway did have pet odor and there was security in the parking lot not sure why not from the area. But overall the hotel was decent for the price. I’ll definitely book again love the kitchen area

Fair pet-friendly value
Very friendly staff with easy check-in. Very pet-friendly. We needed to find a place to stay quickly after traveling several hours and being stuck in traffic and unable to get to our destination on time. I am not sure if it is related to COVID in which efforts are focused elsewhere for protection, but cleanliness was lacking in many aspects. Grime and grit on bathroom floor, obvious hairs left behind in bathroom that housekeeping should have seen. Yellow tobacco film on ceilings and hotel is smoke-free. Mirrors were dirty. Dirty carpets. Layout of room was very nice and style was nice. Furniture was quite wore down with old cigarette holes on sofa where sofa bed is located. I wouldn't let anyone lay down or sit down until i inspected beds and mattresses with flashlight. There were no concerns with the linens or beds after inspection. We slept very well and kids slept well. Hotel does not smell of pets. No continental breakfast secondary to COVID. Incidental hold of $100 on credit cards for all guests is not mentioned on, but that wasn't a major concern. Overall it is a fair value for a weary traveling family with two small dogs.

Fair 4.0
Disappointing that mask rules were not enforced by staff of the other guest. It made it very uncomfortable walking through the halls and using the elevator. The tile in the bathroom of the room I stayed in was all cracked. There was no remote control in the room. I tried to call down, but the room phone did not work. They said they would bring it to the room, but heard the wrong number and it was never delivered.

Very good 8.0
It is a cute room, nice amount of space .....bed comfortable . Has laundry downstairs available , for regular laundry prices . Nice location , food and gas close by. Sadly covid made it so no one came to clean the room and I was there longer than a cleaned my own room 😒. But all in all was good
Kim, us7 night business trip
Poor 2.0
terrible stay
The outside appearance is good and we were all cheated by it. The room was terrible. The air con smell. The telephone and the hair dryer didn’t work. There was human hair left in the towels. The sofa bed was dirty and I dared not open it to sleep. Need to cut short my stay there and changed to another hotel. In the website it said breakfast would be included but it was suspended due to the pandemic. It should be updated ! The only thing I found it good was its location. Easy to find restaurants and grocery store but I will never come back!

Hotel is pretty worn down and they did not have a roll away bed which was a surprise but the shower was nice and the toiletries provided were so amazing I looked up the brand to buy more

Poor 2.0
Never again
First of all the room smells like smoke and I’ve been a non-smoker for five years and then there was black hair and urine around the back of the toilet and the sides of the toilet and on the floor
