  • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

Didn't like all the stairs, with heavy bags, to get to reception. Girl on reception , when we arrived, was unhelpful.Rest of the staff were good. Breakfast was poor. We were on the 4th floor. Very morning we passed piles of dirty linen on every floor. In the room we could not adjust the water from the shower head and the toilet seat would not stay up. The location was good. Would not stay there again

    • Disliked: Staff & service

    Ok , very mediocre. Location was good , but staff was foreign labor, my guess from the accents , Poland’s and Ukraine, other Eastern Europe... Not very friendly, difficult to understand. No extra friendly welcome or offer of travel help. A simple wood ramp along side the edge of the stairs would help us older folks drag our luggage up to the lobby
