They should put coffee and tea in the rooms. Room was large and clean. breakfast was about as good as you can do for a take away breakfast. Hotel is not on the water as other reviews said. From our room facing the water you could not see anything but the parking lot and other buildings.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The carpet was extremely dirty. The bathroom had bad smell and no exhaust fan. The towels had a faded color which made it hard to use. The overall place was not worth the money we paid.

4/5 Good

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Offered a customized breakfast option due to covid but it was not good. There was no elevator which was a struggle being on the 3rd level from the parking lot. Screens didn't fit the windows so leaving them open was not an option. The pool was over chlorinated, with no access to the outie from the pool, nor could you get back in if using the emergency exit. Staff was friendly, location was good, beds were terribly uncomfortable, but it was pretty inexpensive compared to what else was around town.

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The carpet in our room was very dirty and even had gum ground into the carpet in a few places. We had to step around them all week or our feet would stick to the gum. The pool and hot tub area smelled like mold. The staff were nice but were unable to help us with the gum because of COVID-19 restrictions.
