    • Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

    Our stay was great, the property is very nice, but they have hidden fees that you only find out about after your stay. For example, they included water on our bill, even though it was not clearly labeled and none of the staff members didn’t mention that it was not complimentary. Not a huge thing to worry about, but the overall feeling of being welcomed has been decreased. Plus the property is undergoing some renovation and it seems like staff is so concentrated on that that they do not pay a lot of attention to their current guests.

    Stayed 2 nights in Feb. 2020


    • Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities

    They charged $150 for dog cleaning fee, our small dog didn’t do anything! Expedia should provide the detail info about pet! The sofa bed was the worst bed whatever I slept! It’s too expensive! The staff’s attitude was terrible regarding my complain!
