    Fair 4.0
    Gross place
    Hotel was gross, room seemed like it was cleaned but overall hotel was gross and wasn’t cheap. Breakfast was included which was only juice, coffee, and granola bars.
    Jennifer, us2 night family trip
    Good 6.0
    I was put in a ADA room which is fine but it was shabby looking and the fan in the bathroom was seized and made a horrendous noise and after a short time, began smelling "hot". There was absolutely no color in the room which was not at all what I saw when looking online to book a place. It was a depressing room. I went to the front desk asking if there was another room as this is not at all what I expected. It appears some construction will occur with the parking spaces in front of the room being all blocked off. For the price I was very dissappointed.
