1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Stay away! First when we arrived it was a 45 min wait to check in, apparently the front desk clerk was also the valet. Additionally fully knowing we had 2 dogs with us, they put us in a non-friendly room and I had to pay and extra $200- and this hotel is not worth $75 a night. This is more like motel but I’d rather stay in a motel 6 than this place.
