Thank you for staying with us.

5 out of 5

Just about perfect

Very comfortable beds and pillows, nice tv, fridge, microwave, and kuerig coffee pot(convienient). Room was clean, nice walls and carpet. I liked how the tv was higher on the wall, nice when watching while lying down. 4/5 on comfort because the towels being hard and scratchy, I like soft towels. 4/5 on condition just cause the bath/shower piece could be upgraded, couple small holes in plastic going up the side like it used to have a bracket for a sliding door or something. 4/5 on staff because I booked the room online, started playing poker at the casino at 11pm,where it ain't easy to get a seat at the table. They play until 1am on weekdays. So I got a call from hotel saying office closes at midnight... So I had to cut my game short to go finish booking. I gave it 5/5 overall cause even with the minor things I didn't like, paying only 53$ total for the room made up for them.
