Room was fine. Elevator could have used an air freshener. Cigarette container needed to be cleaned up. Did not get in the pool because of the weather.

First time staying here. The room was a bit smaller than some other hotels, but it was very clean. One of the beds was very comfy, the other had a giant dip in it. There was no soap in the bathroom and the maid did not come in Fri or Sat. However, the front desk staff - we dealt with...
