2/5 Poor

Travelled with family
Liked: Staff & service
While the staff was very pleasant, we were disappointed that we were not told in advance that parking was $51 per day, there would be no daily maid service and no movie options on cable (only basic cable.) They had no brochures on things to do and no maps available for us. The bathroom was TINY. On the positive side, the location was great, continental breakfast free and again, the staff was very pleasant.
