I attempted tp check in around 7:30 pm. Im did book last minute, however I had to wait 30 minutes for someone to come back from their lunch. I told her that I was about 10 mins away and she said that she would see me in 30 minutes because she was going to lunch. Terrible customer service in my opinion. Other than that, our stay was great.

Hotel had the friendliest reception staff I have encountered in my travels and it was really fast to check in and check out. Rooms were a little dated but very comfortable and clean. Pool was nice although I did not use it. Workout room was small but convenient.
