Daniel Solo Traveler May 19, 2021
Positives: Hotel employee at the Front Desk was awesome! The bed was super comfortable.
Negatives: Rooms were ok overall. The front rooms definitely need soundproofing. The I-10 traffic noise is very loud in the room. Guest noise was also very loud. Also, the way the curtains are, there is no way to blackout the light. Opt for a room in the back.

Positives: I appreciated the front desk help and the the maintenance man who helped us and accommodated us.
Negatives: 1st room: ac broken so switched to new room that had a better ac and it still wasn’t working correctly. Decided to check out early because it was very uncomfortable in the room with the heat and little to no air. Children were getting heat
Jesika Group Traveler August 1, 2020
Positives: What I liked best is the bed. King size bed so comfortable and cozy. I also like the colors of the room it sets the atmosphere.
Negatives: I did not like the fact that the a/c was not cooling the room. I  got the suite. I will never rent it again. The price is to high  considering the quality of room. Not worth the $----
