    Great time!
    I was very nice but breakfast was pretty much just cereal. Kind of sad. Other than that it was beautiful and everyone was so nice! Very comfortable to come back to and rest after a busy day.

    Clean, quiet, comfortable room with the amenities we needed for our stay. We stayed for 4 nights. The only issues we had were that we could not get extra pillows the first night and the staff did not seem to be using PPE. Minor issues, overall. We would definitely stay here again.

    Room for improvement
    Overall it was a decent stay, but I did not like the lack of covid precautions by cleaning and front desk staff. There was a sign inside my room that said I needed to call for any cleaning. I thought that was great, I had sanitized my room on arrival and didn't want anyone coming in for safety reasons. The very first day I was out for work someone had come in my room to fold towels. I was very unhappy and had to ask for a do not disturb sign. Housekeeping tried to come in another time to replace my pillows. They wore no masks and no hand sanitizer in sight. I had also arranged for a pick up at the airport and they were 45 minutes late eventhough I had made the arrangement only an hour prior to the pick up time and they had chosen the time. Overall, staff was friendly and the room was comfortable. They put me right next to the lobby eventhough my reservation had requested to be away from the lobby. Really there was just some ball dropping going on.

    It was a nice property, however... it was lead to believe the room was larger than a standard hotel room and it was not. The space was very tight.

    Public Health Hazard
    Great location. The front desk clerks did not wear masks at any point. They had them around their chins most of the time. Only about 50% of housekeeping wore a mask. The elevator was broken the entire time we were there with no attempts to fix it. The breakfast area was set up for social distancing but none of the employees seemed to care so the attempt was not really worth it. The room itself was very nice for the price.

    The staff was very friendly, although the girl that checked us in wore attire that was not very appropriate. Bra showing over a tube top. Not professional. But she was very nice and helpful. The room was clean, no complaints except that the hide-a-bed was not the most comfortable.

    Bathrooms need fan was so hot and damp after a shower. Need more cookware and utensils, platesn and cups. We had services for 3 but had 6 staying in the room. What's the point of getting a kitchenette if you can't cook anything.

    Hotel overbooked
    We booked a room with two queen beds and a sofa bed and paid extra for the larger room. When we arrived the manager said the room we booked was no longer available and the only rooms left were 1 queen bed with a sofa bed. This did not fit the description of the room we booked and paid a no refundable fee for. It also did not fit the needs of our family. We were given two rooms that we were told were across the hall but they were across and down the hall. Both rooms smelled musty and in one room there was a large chocolate on the floor. This gave me little confidence that the room had been sanitized before we checked in. The hotel told us the mistake of overbooking was fault but said it is the hotels fault. Disappointing customer service from both the hotel and the website. Needless to say, it was late and there were no hotels available in the area so we ended up splitting our kids up between the two rooms and my husband and I sleeping in separate rooms. Not the vacation I had in mind when I booked.
