Positives: The staff is AMAZING. Very pleasant and knowledgeable, regardless of their position. Property was kept exceptionally clean. Bed was very comfortable and the decor was really cool, especially in the lobby!
Negatives: Humid room, not very luxurious accommodations, no coffee maker or microwave, very thin walls, and restaurant was closed. Felt like we overpaid for a motel rather than got a steal on a 4 star hotel.
