3/5 Okay

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness
The parking structure under the property is extremely tight. Making the turns from one floor up or down very difficult. We scraped the side of our car after backing up and back to try to make the turn. We figure it will take $300-500 to fix it. On the walls you can see many places where other cars have scraped. We wouldn’t stay there again.
