    Service Lacking and Intimidating

    Pillows lumpy, no shampoo, soap etc. But most concerning is the customer service! Service that was decidedly unfriendly/ downright combative when there was confusion as to how one ordered the "complementary breakfast." In fact the breakfast attendant advanced into my 5 ft , 95 lbs ; 65 year old mother who has a brain tumor's personal bubble and clapped their hands several times in her face ... rude actions in and of themselves and most def not in accordance with the 3-6 ft of indoor masked space current state mandate.

    Bed was very uncomfortable. Small bathroom. Older hotel & carpet definitely needs replaced. Staff not friendly. I’ll stick with Marriott. Never disappoints.

    The biggest issue I had was the water temperature in the shower. It was either ice cold or scalding hot. But other than that, it was a delightful stay!
