I was awake by a stranger entering my room with a key. Since there was no safe. If I hadn't been there all my stuff could have be stolen. I check out that day.

Travelled with family
Disliked: Staff & service
The staff was not friendly or helpful. I booked a room (paid in advance) that included free parking and when we arrived to check-in they informed us that there was no parking available and that it was a mistake on the website. Instead of trying to be at all understanding of our situation (traveling long distance with one-year-old twins) they just said it wasn’t their problem. I hope they learn better customer service skills.
