Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
We stayed here over our wedding weekend. We were sad that there was no room service available and disappointed to be placed in a room with an adjoining room... our neighbors kept us up to 2:30am fighting and carrying on. A few days later, there was another rowdy fight in the hallway with different guests! The staff was very friendly but it did seem like we did not really get what we paid for.
