4/10 Fair

We were disappointed that for a 4+ rated hotel and for the price of this hotel, this room was small, the amenities were sparse, plastic disposable cups, shower leaked all over the floor, bed was too soft, lights at sides above the bed didn’t work, towels were worn, no free parking, no included streaming tv (one was required to sign up for the service), clock didn’t work, noisy outside. On top of that, we were jarred out of bed by a fire alarm this morning. I doubt if we will be back.

10/10 Exceptional

Knowledgeable front desk staff, great service at the hotel breakfast bar, and a pool where I was able to float all alone for hours. Also the first place I have stayed since the pandemic where they come in everyday and refresh your soap and linens, which I missed more than I thought I would.
