            Location

            $220 was a lot to pay for a minimum of services.

          • Couple
            5.0

            Noisy location. Sits above a Chinese restaurant. Walls VERY thin. Woken up both nights in middle of the night & kept awake by noisy neighbors sex, EW! Very glad our son was not with us on this trip.

            only one staff member was not very friendly and pre occupied with cell phone

          • Family with children
            5.4

            Room was small but new renovations were good, liked decor of room alot.

            Found sex jell in sheets of bed, also when checking out I left prescription glasses on bed, when I returned a few hours later to retreive, glasses weren't turned in. Call a few days later still no glasses turned in. Calls into question the honesty and/or thoroughness of cleaning staff.
