          Location

          $220 was a lot to pay for a minimum of services.

        • Couple
          5.0

          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.
