16-Jun-2019 Verified Review, stayed from Thu Jun 13 to Fri Jun 14 2019 at a $80.10 average nightly rate.
"Okay Once You Find It!"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
This place was extremely hard to find. The address given does not show up on the map. Perhaps they changed the streets some time back, but there really is no signage to help people find it. The only thing I saw the next day (after fumbling around in the dark the night before) was little posters staked into the ground that looked like real estate signs. Who would be looking at those? The staff at the desk was always friendly and helpful. The maids, however, did not once check to see if I needed new dish towels or anything else. Even when I left the dirty ones out in the hall. I realize that I'm going to be there for four days and don't need my bed changed or even fresh bath towels, but a look to see if things were needed, or wastebaskets emptied, would have been nice. Otherwise, the place was clean and quiet. I did enjoy staying there and would do so again in the future.
