Although the staff while I was there was very accommodating, the pool was refreshing, breakfast was decent but...I can home covered in bed bug bites. I called as soon as I had it confirmed by my doctor as I was not sure if they were bed bug bites. I spoke with the manager and all I got was sorry but we don't have bed bugs!
There was live music and cookies when we arrived.
Fitness center had two cardio machines and three training machines.
Breakfast was hot and ok. They had hot sauce packets which is a plus. Pretty small room.
Coffee is supposed to always be on. Water comes out in afternoon and cookies every night.
But....Someone stole or threw out several of our bags- which is a big downer.
The pool is small and doesn’t get sun in afternoon.
Oh- and we didn’t get room service at all- and when we did a ton of stuff came up missing.
