Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
After 10 hour drive, we arrived and woman was quite rude. Went to room and the door didn’t lock. They sent up a handyman who I had to watch for 10 minutes file down lock set to get it to lock. The lights and air didn’t work. Booked two nights left after one night. Expecting a refund from Expedia.
