The room had water damage. Smelled moldy. No microwaves in rooms. Refrigerator very noisy. Air conditioner in my room and others very loud. Bed was saggy. Toilet ran most of my stay. I did report it. Not fixed.

we looked at other hotels in the area, but were not impressed with the attitude of the staff, or willingness to assist. I really enjoyed our stay and would stay again given the opportunity.
