    • Disliked: Staff & service

    The property was run down, we certainly did NOT have a room like the one shown in the photos, we had an old tattered and run down down, with a run down bathroom. The breakfast was fine, HOWEVER dinner was a completely different story! Food was disgusting, cold and greasy, had to be returned and waited almost an hour for a new one, when that cam it was cold. The restaurant manager and I use the that term VERY loosely, had no clue how to deal with the situation. We will NEVER return.

    Fabulous staff and great location

    Staff were lovely and my room just so nice. Food wasn’t so great at the conference I attended though but would definitely stay here again.
