Nice place. We enjoyed it, but weather was cold so we couldn't use pool or enjoy marina setting as much as we would have liked.

wasn't pleased with my stay. our room wasn't clean. found a spiders in bathroom, our ac unit vents were dusty. the gym stank, and in the morning you can hear the clean up crew chatting it up and banging laundry carts. also the view of the countless homeless parked in the lot across the street wasn't safety reassuring. I used to like this place but going to have to find a different hotel next stay.

Upon checking in the bathroom sink was plugged. Maintenance was sent to clear it but was unable to. We were moved to another room and it had food pieces on the floor and long hair throughout the bathroom. Housekeeping was questionable at best

Very thin walls and can hear everyone from above you and next to you even if they are not being loud. Our air conditioning also had what looked like mold in it
