The bathroom shower did not work, and it was rusted with chips on the bottom of the tub. The room seemed dirty. The sheets and pillows were old. The staff was limited due to COVID, and they were spread thin. I will say the staff was friendly. However, No one answered the valet or guest services when I called. Overall it was a bad experience, and I will not be staying there again.

I liked the scenery and the pool area. I was disappointed mainly because of the cleanliness. My child had an oreo they found and had it in their mouth! As if that wasn’t enough, when I went to sleep, I noticed something under me inside the mattress sheet. I had to unmake the bed to get whatever crumb it was out. I paid $270 total and that is just ridiculous with what I experienced.

It was shady characters throughout the lobby and going to floors flowing other people up to their floors just unacceptable. And the elevator situation was horrible.

Liked: Staff & service
It says it is a boutique hotel and it is not. I stayed 3 nights and the first day they did not clean my room, the second night I heard a lot of noise outside the room because of other guests talking outloud and even screaming and knocking at other room doors, so we could not sleep all night. The parking lot is behind the hotel and no one explains to you how to pay or where to leave the car, so we paid for much more hours than we had to. And I signed a no smoking policy and the elevators smelled like if someone smoked weed inside. It will not be a good place to stay again and I will not recomend it to anyone.
