  • Liked: Cleanliness
  • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities

For the price of this hotel. The room was extremely small. 2 people could not fit in this bathroom to even look in the mirror. Asked for a later check out. Could not guarantee? Yes or no would have been an answer. Went to check out one person working waited like 20 minutes and then i just let them bill my card. I will not be back.
