    Noisy location. Sits above a Chinese restaurant. Walls VERY thin. Woken up both nights in middle of the night & kept awake by noisy neighbors sex, EW! Very glad our son was not with us on this trip.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    only one staff member was not very friendly and pre occupied with cell phone

  • Family with children
    5.4

    Room was small but new renovations were good, liked decor of room alot.

    Found sex jell in sheets of bed, also when checking out I left prescription glasses on bed, when I returned a few hours later to retreive, glasses weren't turned in. Call a few days later still no glasses turned in. Calls into question the honesty and/or thoroughness of cleaning staff.
