Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness, amenities
The property is great, however, I found the service to be a bit disappointing. Some staff were abrupt and unfriendly. Also, the breakfast was very disappointing. My husband ordered scrambled eggs on muffin, but he literally got a teaspoon of egg on his hamburger bun. It was very poor, and when he went to the order counter, he was told to go speak to the chef and shrugged off. No apology, no effort to try and assist... poor customer service to say the least.
