It was nice they gave us a kitchenette room which we didn’t book but enjoyed being able too cook, they have some full time residents there that really hurt their business from making it not enjoyable to sit outside , and loud with fights at night time

3/5 Okay

The carpet was not clean, something in the air made me sick. I got asthma. They did not made the bed the next day. I think this was a motel, on the Expedia site I did not notice that and I went with my mother, she was not comfortable with this hotel. Expedia should specify when it is a hotel or a motel Thank you
