Have stayed here on multiple occasions and have had a great experience This stay, we had homeless people staying in the stairwell and at outside end veranda. Also, guest in our hallway/rooms were smoking pot in the rooms and had a argument for 15 minutes in the hallway until WE confronted them. Hallways and stairwells littered with garbage. Was told at sign in that housekeeping was minimal. Maybe better security?

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with comments regarding your stay with us. I am sorry you had a less than desirable experience. I will be sure to look into your concerns and bring them as well to the attention of our security company. We hope you provide us another opportunity in the future

Even though we reserved for two people, there was only one hand towel and one washcloth in the bath. Wi-Fi never worked. Lots of stains on the floor. Walking to car felt unsafe with all the homeless around, one person screaming and cursing constantly. Was promised towels the next day, did not happen, had to go to front desk myself. Only can get housekeeping if you order the day before. I will upgrade and stay at a motel six next time.

When I first checked in things were good. Then my wife and I went to the room and checked it out. There were stains on the carpet and office chair. In the bathroom the soap dish in the shower was broken. The secondary lock on the door was broken as well. Despite that the room was pretty clean. Then midnight hit and I heard constant slamming of doors and people walking around the hallway. A few minutes later our door handle sounded like someone tried to come in. Then a random woman opened up our room and woke up my wife. We immediately called the front desk and told them that something like this should never happen. They claimed to be having a key problem. For the rest of the night it was hard to sleep because I wasn’t sure if anyone else was going to come into our room. Also all through out the night/early morning people were so loud in the hallways.

Not sure if the entire building is a no-smoke area, though we were told no smoking was permitted. But as we headed to our room, the smell of cigarettes smoke was evident in the hallways. Overall, we were comfortable in our room.
