It may be the coronavirus situation and lack of employees but the property needs a lot of attention to bring it up to par. The shower head was leaking all over the bathroom on the first room assigned, which was also dirty. Upon notifying the front desk, we were promptly reassigned another room and had to pack everything and move. During our 3 nights stay the room was not cleaned or attended, nor the garbage removed, and on the second morning there was no breakfast or coffee available. Overall, this was one of our worst stays in any hotel.

When I arrived to my room almost an hour after check-in, the room was open and still being cleaned. My room phone did not work to call the front desk, so I had to go back down to the reception area. There was no TV control in the room. There was minimal channels available and no access to log in to Netflix or Amazon accounts to watch movies. The staff sent to my room did not have a uniform or ID on.

I loved my overall stay. Everything was clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly. I loved being able to ride the shuttle bus to the game and Ms. Barbara was very friendly and professional. Thanks for making our stay lovely.
