staff and employees in this hotel all of them seem to be in a bad temper all the time. All of them talk to the customers in bad way. There isn’t customer service.

Great location and simple accommodations. I was disappointed in the resort fee (for amenities I didn't plan to use) and the fee charged to hold bags, especially when the front desk staff wasn't even willing to check if a room was ready when we arrived early.
