"Ehh"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
First, the room key we were given was to a room that was in use. 2. No water was available in the vending machine. 3. Our window glass was broken and there was glass laying in the window ledge. 4. Room was old looking. five haven't used the bathroom yet so I'm not sure on that. Definitely not worth the price I paid of $193. I would say it should have been about $100 less. Sad. After a full day of wine tasting, I was disappointed.
