The staff was very nice throughout stay, sad that the same people work like two days straight. The fact that you don’t get room cleaned and stocked each day is not pleasant. You have to empty own garbages and bring dirty towels down and ask for toilet paper when needed which they should mention on website ahead which is why we booked here because they state daily housekeeping. They only switch bedding and clean rooms after 5th day. Not many people stay that long. I did ask if room could be cleaned out last night and get new sheets but came back to it not being done. The breakfast staff very nice and helpful. Overall nice hotel but under staffed which is all over the US right now. Which is hard to pay full price without normal service. The pool and hot tub is gross and hasn’t been cleaned in a long time so that we didn’t get to enjoy either.

The problems were: the shower leaked, the toilet kept running sometimes, the door to our room was misaligned and made it hard to close and open, the phone in the room didnt work, and the room cleaners didnt clean the room and restock it for our next day. The good things were: room was nice and clean. Staff was friendly, and check in and check out was easy. There were alot of places to get gas, eat, shop near by.

My room was in need of an update. Carpeting was old and stained. Toilet did not flush. Bath tub stained by rust. Bed was good though.

Hotel is being/has been renovated, which is nice. But the workmanship and follow up is lacking. My towel bar was falling off and housekeeping just put a new towel on it. Tape from the Reno’ was still on the tile corner pieces, adhesive residue was still on the top of the sink backsplash and is catching dirt so it will be impossible to clean properly, doorknob looks old but is likely just has paint splashes from the renovation
