I enjoyed everything about this hotel, except the smell. Definitely could tell pets were allowed in area I was staying. Other than that the food was great and service even better. Location is great too. Lots of food options near by.

      • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

      The lady at the desk was new but very nice and doing her best. The shuttle from the airport was a mess. Very unclear as to where to meet. It was in disrepair. I busted my shin on a bar sticking out of the seat getting to the back. Later heard that the driver didnt go back to pick up patrons. The room was fine but very expensive.
