We enjoyed our stay and the staff were friendly. I was disappointed that our room never got cleaned or serviced across the three nights we were there. The room setups are interesting. If we would of known we would have asked our family to share same space. Because you have two rooms behind one main door it’s very loud. We had guests that were in and out late/early hours and with a baby it’s loud.
