    Came for the jacuzzi suite BUT

    The Shower curtain rod in the bathroom was broken so the curtain kept sliding open on both ends during my shower. The floors in the common areas were dirty.

    Great place to stay

    Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and did not disappoint. Because of Covid restrictions, the breakfast choices were not good at all. But I am sure it will be better when the restrictions are lifted.

    Disappointed

    There were signs on the front door saying Masks Required to Enter, however front desk person, nor any customers walking the hall. Disappointed to find we were given a handicapped room. Immediately noticed the room had an odd smell, not sure if it was just stale, or a cleaning product. The bed was comfortable enough. Breakfast was another disappointment. A cold & dry sausage biscuit wrapped in tin foil, apple, and a chewy bar. Just my opinion, but if you're passing out biscuits that require heating in room microwaves, perhaps wrap in something microwavable.

    Jetted tub/awful bed!!

    We paid $146 for the night to have the jetted tub in the room. The tub was awesome..... but the bed was SO unvomfortable we barely slept. For what we paid i expected the top of the line bedding offered at the other chai s we norally stay at (La Quinta, Red Roof, Days Inn). It was o e of THE most uncormfortable stays I have ever had!

    Very roomy clean and great customer service. The only thing I would suggest is changing the carpet to hardwood since it is pet friendly .
