Rooms are clean and hotel is nice – unfortunately I can’t say the same for a front desk staff member who made my experience less than ideal I had been staying two nights previously and just needed one additional night I walked in said I’d like to book a room to which the night front desk clerk Informed me that he is not able to make a reservation and I would have to do it online

I thought I was being punked because I’m literally standing at the front desk of the hotel and in a less than pleasant fashion repeated “online, online, yes online” I asked for anyone else that could me and their name and number and they let me know that that person wouldn’t be here until Monday Which means they don’t have a manager Saturday and Sunday and conveniently they’re out of all the contact information for this person This really ruined my experience that was so great for the first two nights that I stayed here That’s very unfortunate And both outlets at the bed only work if the light is turned on in this room

Nice location clean hotelStolen items from room by housekeepingDeposit wasn’t released for two weeks and 7 phone calls ( must have slipped through the cracks they said )Stay at Hilton across the road not as pretty but a comfortable clean quiet stay

I am not a fan of leaving 1 star reviews but our stay at the Ayres Hotel was one of the worst experiences staying in hotels I have ever experiencedUpon arrival we were greeted by a security guard who let us in to the lobby (we arrived late), check-in went well, and the overall atmosphere and decor of the Hotel looked great! I was excited, it appears well kept and clean -Which it isNight 1 our stay went well, the next morning we decided to go visit family, and as such we left our card on the door that says do not disturb

( we didnt want our beds made and we were fine on towels ) We came back to our hotel that late afternoon to discover that the staff STILL entered our room I noticed the cash I had on my nightstand was also missing ( it was only 3 or 4 dollars ) I made all of us go through our personal belongings to make sure I we didn’t accidentally take the cash off the nightstand -We didn’tI went to the front counter to express my concern that we left the sign on the door, and that the staff had still entered I informed the front desk person “Cody” that I think we had the cleaning staff enter our room when we did not want it, and we are missing 3 or 4 dollars, not a big deal but the principal behind it was why I wanted to lodge a complaintWe later found out that my wife’s brand new slippers also went missing that day Cody did his best to try to be understanding but offered no resolution other than “sorry that happened to you , I will inform our manager” And that was that I emailed their manager and have received 0 response My next step is to contact their corporate office to at least let them know of this unsavory behavior in hopes the sticky handed staff will be busted Aside from the theft it is a pretty nice hotel

We were in town for my parents funeral and we were recommended here by Miller-Jones Mortuary I was not disappointed!! I have a difficult time staying at hotels because i used to manage a hotel for many years so the last few hotels we stayed at were a disappointment But NOT here

the front desk staff was super courteous, the rooms were very clean, even the towels (which are what I always look at to determine the cleanliness) had no spots!!! Floors and carpets were clean (no stains) and the hallways and room smelled fresh Definately be coming back here next time we are in California!!

Joanne Douds

Loved staying at the Ares for a four day wedding! Staff was professional and friendly, rooms were large and well apointed Loved having a kitchen area in room with microwave, small refrigerator and coffee machineBreakfast was plentiful, I would suggest they add a high brand non fat Greek yoghert to replace the brand they currently have

Wonderful in every way!

Staff is AMAZING! The exterior doors are very heavy and hard to open and go out of order all the time The rooms are OK but there is always a lot of unceasing noise from whomever is above you no matter what room you are in Usually the rooms are clean depending on who is cleaning

Things do get missed People don’t clean up after their dogs here or around the property There should be a fee for dog clean up Breakfast is just OK They serve sausage almost everyday which is kinda gross and becoming very mundane and not appetizing The french toast is normally dry and hard and cannot be chewed The bacon is A LOT better but they only serve Once a week Dinner is OK I only recommend the orange chicken, pizza, possibly hamburgers and hot dogs Although, they need to upgrade quality of meat Maybe have a nachos night and more pizza nights? The spaghetti is gross They have laundry which is nice but one or more of the machines go out all the time They advertise extended stay but you Must check out after 26 days

Andrew O’Brien

Overall, my experience with the Staybridge Suites in Irvine was very good The staff were very friendly and helpful, the common areas and room were clean, the breakfast was excellent all 3 days of my stay, and the location was very convenient for my needs The one opportunity from my experience is to have enforced stop / start times for the sport court area

During my stay, a group was out playing basketball right outside my window until after midnight and another group started up around 6am the next day Outside of this, excellent experience and I would recommend to others

Pamela R

I give this 5 stars To be honest, it’s a solid 3 star hotel We knew that going in

So for a 3 star hotel, it gets 5 starsNot perfect We got a 2 bedroom suite and the bedroom door that my granddaughter was using didn’t shut correctly We figured a workaround There were only 2 forks in the kitchen The showers each had shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel on a small shelf attached to the inside of the shower In one of the bathrooms it was broken We stayed 2 weeks Housekeeping was only on Thursday for us We checked in on a Tuesday but wouldn’t get Housekeeping until the 2nd Thursday So people put their garbage and towels/sheets outside their doors And there everything sat in the hallways for a week We needed a change of sheets because of a spill The sheets were handed to us but they didn’t take the dirty sheets They sat in the hallway for a week Gross to say the least And, lastly, the laundry room is terrible It’s free to use but nasty We took our laundry to a laundromat instead It was much cleanerWhy 5 stars then? The room was perfect for our needs The kitchen had everything we needed (except enough forks) We baked cookies (toaster oven provided), made waffles (with a waffle iron I bought at Walmart and left with family), and had our munchies Breakfast AND dinner is included We didn’t eat everyday at the hotel Only 3 times for dinner in 2 weeks But it was surprisingly good (both breakfast and dinner) Not gourmet but good and filling The beds were amazingly comfortable And having a separate bedroom for our granddaughter was a must We weren’t in a single room for 2 weeks The staff is so nice I guess the bottom line is that is was comfortable We liked the location We are a tidy family so no housekeeping wasn’t a problem in the room If we needed anything it was just a quick call and it arrived at our roomWe will definitely stay here again when we visit our California family

Good budget hotel with no frills The location of the hotel is good and the rooms are clean and well kept The front desk staff is courteous and helpful

But, basic amenities like housekeeping services and complimentary refill of water bottles, tea/coffee pouches are not provided in the room The guests are asked to refill water bottles from the gymnasium (where you get only chilled water) or purchase them from the vending machine on the ground floor The breakfast menu is limited and very basic Overall good for a short weekend stay, but would not recommend for long stay

Syed Aftab

The hotel itself was great Nice and clean in a good location The reason for the low review is because of one of the employees there

He is an Asian man (for description purposes) He yelled at my aunt and other guests that were staying with us for a wedding because they were having a normal volume level conversation in the hotel lobby This employee threatened to call the police and have us kicked out of the hotel without a refund Again, the conversation was at normal, indoor-appropriate volume, away from guests rooms, in the lobby This kind of behavior is unacceptable The employee didn’t give a warning about the conversation at all and went off on my family out of nowhere Apparently this guy has been working there for 2 decades Get it together management It’s a shame that such a good hotel is tarnished by a bad employee

Ela Moskovich

The hotel is extremely dated, everything is old and smellyWe booked a week through Hotelscom

After checking in and seeing with our own eyes how horrible this place is we tried to cancel the remaining 6 nightsThe hotel refused to give us a refund and Hotelscom is useless… now, the consumer needs to find the way to fight two huge corporations:Marriott and HotelscomWhat are the chances???!

This facility seems new Overall cleanliness is pretty goodThe shower had some grimy buildup around the drain

It appears that a drink had been spilled on the chair Remnants of the drink were dried around the bottom of the chairHousekeeping serviced the room They took the used towels and shower mat but didn’t replace themI was disappointed with the breakfast I stay exclusively in Holiday Inns because they have turkey sausage for breakfast This property only had pork But the hot food was hot where other properties seem to have trouble with thatThe location is good with a variety of stores and restaurants nearbyIn spite of my complaints, I would stay here again I hope someone with authority here is paying attention to these comments I’ll also mention them on the way out the door in the morning

Brenda Fox

Worst Holiday Inn Ever! Been here 2 nights already Shampoo and conditioner wall containers empty Called the front desk and they don’t have any

Nobody has cleaned our room or brought towels since I have been here I called desk and they said if u wanted clean ones, I had to come down and get them myselfBreakfast is not good This is California and for fresh fruit, there is only some bad looking apples Waffle maker was not working and eggs were coldI like Holiday Inns normally but do not recommend anyone stay here!

Desiree Bernal

This Holiday Inn location has been far the most worst one I stayed in So first complaint is there was no swim towels outside not once but twice To top it off there were only two swim towels available on Saturday night for me and my family of 4 to share

When I asked for more towels I was told they needed to be washed and would give me more That never happened The breakfast was horrible Trying to get extra toliet paper from the front desk was like taking candy from baby I wouldn’t reconsider staying at this location again

It presents a fancy place when you 1’st walk in It’s an older hotel, room needed minor fixes, we just did without Bathroom door would not lock, and sliding door track was held down with tape and came up with use

The beds are good come with 4 pillows and comfortable Nice cold fridge, but no microwave It was fine for our needs, and they accept pets at $50 a night

Susan Ranahan

About 80 women were there for a celebratory luncheon The service was outstanding and all did an excellent job attending to so many with so few The food was served hot and fresh, and the servings were not skimpy

Taste and presentation were great!There was a lot going on and timing was important The microphones worked, the table set up was lovely and it was a very enjoyable time

Brian C

Unfortunately, didn’t even get the opportunity to stay here Had a family emergency and needed a room for the night For some reason the website was allowing us to book any room, so when I called to book the room, I was quoted significantly higher than their own site

When I asked why, she said we needed to book on the site to get that price, even though I explained that the site wasn’t working Again she said we needed to book on the site and to have a nice dayclick Hopefully they will get their site working so others won’t run into the same experience

Wonderful stay Our daughter had an emergency c-section and we came from out if town We booked online through Priceline for one night and being a Tuesday, the price was comparatively low

We were upgraded because they were out of standard rooms so it was an even better deal It ended up we needed to extend our stay to three nights and the front desk was wonderfully understanding We got the additional nights for the original price The front desk woman was kind and personable, even asking at checkout how our daughter was doing Very clean rooms and public spaces VERY comfortable bed!!! Super spacious Hot actual breakfast (not a “grab bag”) We even got to use the pool and hot tub Beautiful property Highly recommend!

Todd Anderson

When I think of the idea of a Holiday inn in Corona this hotel epitomizes that image It appears as though the owner is trying to get by on the cheap not spending money on infrastructure or amenities Ice maker does not work elevator does not work, in room phone foes mot work

Door is hard to open and won’t self-close Rooms are relatively “nice” but are clean Hallways are not air conditioned so they’re nearly 100° The hallways smell like marijuana, the parking lot smells like marijuana, the pool area smells like marijuana Not a place that I recommend for families Conveniently located close to the 15 but not much in the way of amenities or value for your dollar Currently charging over $200 per room Come back in a year and this place will go for less than 100 bucks a room WOULD NOT RECOMMEND

Isidra-Lynn

HORRIBLE!!! I am a disabled single mother and my 8 year old and I just checked out at 11:30 pm on our pajamas A prior guest left a spilt salsa under the bed the whole side of the bed under the night stand was soaking wet with dirt brown liquid Because they have only 1 room with a spa tub I was not offered another room of the same type

Pulled back the sheet to get in bed after a long day of 4th of July festivities and there are nasty brown stains on the fitted and top sheet I call the front desk and they bring queen sheets Being disabled didn’t enjoy trying to change the sheets myself After sweating and being in pain wresting with the linens I called again and they said they would bring another set of sheets At this point hurting tired and irritated that we are on a holiday weekend having to remove nasty sheets and lay down towels to not walk on what every the brown nasty liquid on the floor This was our 2nd time staying in this exact room If time the mini fridge smelt like someone peed on it This time new fridge but the floor was soaking wet as if someone peed on it Sheets were stained brown like someone peed in the bed Twice nasty and there will not be a 3rd Really sad because its a huge room with spa tub the only nice one in the area

The hotel itself was pretty good We had a great experience at check-in with Alexis She was very welcoming and friendly

Room had everything we needed and was clean Breakfast was good Lots of options and was well stocked A major disappointment was when we went downstairs for breakfast on our last day and hear the desk clerk having a conversation with a male who did not appear to be a guest (and was possibly under the influence of drugs) speaking negatively about a particular profession, law enforcement to be exact They had no consideration for anyone in the lobby that may work in said profession and as an employee of the hotel, the desk clerk should have put a stop to that conversation the second the males started his ranting As an employee of the hotel, the employee is responsible for making guests feel welcome, no matter what profession, and we definitely did not As Hilton Honors members we have stayed in numerous Hilton hotels and never had such a distasteful experience

Alberta Cotton

My experience with this hotel started out terrible My family and I were traveling, for a family vacation We arrived to our hotel after several flight delays

I remained in constant contact with this hotel via the Hilton app(message) and the phone Our room was paid in full (through Travelocity), and yet upon arrival my room was cancelled My family and I was locked out and spoken to on the phone(in the forte) and was referred to as,”Oh yeah your the lady that called about your room” When finally allowed to enter and approach the front desk, Sophia begin to say that I called at 12:56am and that she canceled my paid in full room at 12:00 midnight because she didn’t hear from me at 11:30pm when I said I would arrive Even though I called numerous times When I messaged because I couldn’t get through via the phone, she said she was having technical issues and that’s why she didn’t answer the phone She told me that I would have to pay for the room all over again and request a refund I refused because in my email I knew I could not get a refund or modify my room So she then says she can try to get me in a room and that I would have to pay a $200 deposit (she said I would get it back in 5-7 days), I agreed She booked the room, but I expressed to her my disappointment in knowing that my room was cancelled and my money was just taken like that She begin to express how she could lose her job if she books the room under another reservation and I not pay I continued to wait for a room, because at this point my husband, four children and I were extremely tired after being at the airport over five hours Sophia was apologetic after a while for her actions and gave us complimentary water(2 bottles and one pack of cheese its) She said she would make a note of what occurred and her co worker would fix the problem As we finally begin to settle in, my phone pings and alerts me that my card was ran for $258 and $74 after booking the room, but I locked my card, so the charges were declined I asked her about that she said that her co worker would fix it because she was “new” and didn’t know how to fix this problem Well we decided to get some rest and address this situation in the morning( I couldn’t sleep so I just stayed up due to this issue) The next day was better, we met Dennis He spoke with us and he reassured us that the problem would be fixed Dennis made our entire experience better He genuinely was apologetic and he made us feel welcomedThe rooms were fairly new and clean We stayed three days two nights, we lost a day due to our delayed flight There was free breakfast from 6:30-9:30am, it was pretty good But our rooms were not cleaned the entire time we were there I’m not sure if we had to request room service or not because it was not communicated with us Overall, I’m not sure if I would stay at this hotel again, but we definitely appreciate all the Dennis did for us

Jennifer Walker

We contacted the hotel as requested by them on my last review This contact was made five days ago and no one has ever gotten back to us I think that it is interesting that they act concerned, but by their actions, obviously are not

They wasted our time a second time by asking us to contact them just so they could appear on this review that they really care about their customers I’m sure, as the other reviews reflect, that it is a nice place However, I would not take a chance on making a reservation that may be cancelled on you if they decide to give it away to someone else even after confirming our arrival time with hotel staff

Everything was great Wonderful pool and jacuzzi with amazing views Breakfast was great, the eggs were dry and fake (previous times at this hotel they were not like this)

The only thing I ask is maybe cut the bush back on the north side of the property It makes it difficult to walk to the sidewalk to get to the ballgame Maybe if it is not too much trouble to talk to the vets office down below and ask to cut their bush as well it goes out into the street and makes it difficult to walk as well Both these big bushes have been huge and overgrown all 7 times the last 5 years we have stayed at your hotel (the vets bush is definitely not your fault)

Kaylee Reynolds

The rooms are clean there was plenty of parking and the front desk staff were nice The front desk staff were also helpful when asked what there is to do close by My only complaint is that the breakfast lady was rude once it hit time to put everything away

Was in the middle of a business email while sitting at a table and she came up and said we are closing down breakfast I said ok yeah no problem I have ate your fine She then proceeded to tell me we had to move right away out of the table so she could rope off the section This isn’t like a separate room with closing doors its literally tables set up off of the lobby I found it very rude that I couldn’t even finish my business but rather had to juggle all my things to move to a chair in the lobby a few steps away and finish my business email

Please DO NOT book here! Unless you are OK with having thousands of dollars taken from your account The total cost of our room was $168000

When I checked in on Friday, they charged me $1700 which I assumed was for taxes, incidentals, etc I was expecting this Sunday morning, I was SHOCKED to find an additional charge for $1000 So now I’ve paid $2700 for a room that was only supposed to be $1680 When I called down to ask what was going on, Marlena (manager), said this is just how their system works and we will get the money back when we check out on Monday Obviously, this has ruined our vacation as we no longer have enough money to safely move forward with our plans and get home Unless you are OK with not having money on your trip, DO NOT BOOK HERE!Another thing that really upset me is that the smoke alarm went off when I was taking a hot shower When I called down to have them turn it off, the first thing out of Trey’s (night staff) mouth was “well, how was I supposed to know it was going off” Not, “sorry, I’ll take care of this now!” Not, “just a moment, please” Just “how was I supposed to know it was going off”??? That was the last straw for me If they hadn’t taken 1k out of my account, I would have checked out and left immediately!It’s also worth noting that the shower curtain was way too small in the bathroom and left huge pools of water on the floorThe service here is also not very good It took them way too long to check me in, did not honor my request for extra towels or pillows, and generally didn’t seem interested in creating a comfortable experience for us as guests Not impressed and do not recommend

Aja Pope

Great job receptionist clerks Martha, Ari, Adrianna and the Housekeeping Staff! These ladies are always Earth Angels when I am here visiting the MoVal area They make sure my stay is always exceptional! All the times that I have stayed here (in different hotel rooms) it has always been clean comfortable and quiet If I needed any accommodations these ladies (mentioned above) and the housekeeping staff made it first priority to service my request

Thanks Marriott team and housekeeping for making my every stay Great!

Jeniva Trotter

My family and I had to stay here for two months because our house had floodedWe had to go here because it was the only thing available at the time that allowed pets(They say they are pet friendly, they mean dog friendly

)We told them we had pets and were told that it was okay It wasn’t until after we had to go somewhere else that they said we couldn’t come back because we had cats with usEven when my mother tried to go back because that was her last resort they wouldn’t let her in because she owned cats EVEN THOUGH those cats were with us at our grandparents, nowhere near there(We assumed that cats were allowed because when we checked in we were not told otherwise, and it clearly says “Cats Allowed”We were not aware that some of the staff there was allergic to cats, as they didn’t say anything)They also gave away my parents room AFTER my mother called to make sure that it was not going to be given to someone else They ended up going to another hotel for the night, but anywayAlso there was half eaten taquitos in the poolPersonally wouldn’t recommend, but I guess it’s different for everyone

Our time there was very nice, but the room is dated and some of the furniture could use some repair/scratch treatment They could also update the chairs in the room to something a little more comfortable Otherwise, the breakfast was basically continental/American and had some decent choices

The hotel is also conveniently located to shopping and many good restaurants and fast food places I would recommend them to anyone who wants a decent place to stay for a reasonable price

Sue H

My cousin and his wife stayed here to be close to my Mom in Laguna Woods They were given a discount on the room, and breakfast was included They reported it was very nice

There was a fridge in the room and she loved the heat lamp and plush towels in the bathroom! It was very clean and they loved the beautiful grounds They would definitely stay here again

Great clean rooms with a so-so continent breakfast, but it is free, so how can I complain The brightest point of the hotel besides it’s cleanliness, great sized rooms and fair prices is the staff that works there They are the most helpful individuals I have ever met

They were always concerned about my needs and did everything they could to take care of everything for me It didn’t matter if it was the morning shift or evening shift they were all fantastic! Thank you ladies and gentlemen for being true professionals!

I’m giving the stars for the staff, all staff members we encounter have been quite friendly We also appreciate the breakfast provided, it had a nice variety of items The lack of stars is for the hotel itself

If we were staying more that one night we would have asked for another room Our room’s curtains wouldn’t close not because they were broken, but because they were designed this way, leaving a large gap in the middle of the window exposed to the pool area We had a safety pin that we were able to use to “close” them, otherwise we would have had the lights from the pool area and surrounding street lights in our room all night, not to mention the lack of privacy Also, this hotel has very thin walls, we were aware throughout the night of all other guests babies, dogs, etc We would not choose this hotel again

Stayed here five years ago and specifically went out of my way to stay here this time Great place good little restaurants around and amazing staff! The only thing was the bed…that thing was like sleeping on plywood I feel like that is something I would have remembered so I would guess it’s time for a change out on the mattresses

Other than the bed the place is easily five stars+

Overall, the room was clean but basic Be advised that these rooms do not have a mini fridge This was an issue for us and when we went to the ice machine as a backup plan, the ice machine was not working

Our TV did not work eitherService was not good – the front desk rarely had anyone there to speak with, and we weren’t informed of the need for a parking pass Thankfully I overheard another guest talking about a parking pass – and I was able to get one for us as wellWe would probably stay here again to give it a 2nd try, but I was definitely disappointed in our stay this past weekend

My husband went on a business trip last week and his employer got him a room here He said that the hotel was right off the freeway and had stores conveniently near by He said the room was nice and clean

The gym was also clean and provided cold water The staff at the breakfast area were very warm and helpful He said the food was fresh He said he would definitely consider staying there again

When first showing up and parking we encountered a crazy homeless man The hotel had a little smell to it Things weren’t wiped down in our room either

The area is nice if you need a cash title loan or a place to buy a gun though, they have it all in the same parking lot The building maintenance looked really well taken care of The place was ok and the breakfast was good

Location was good for where I needed to go The staff was nice Their little market was bare

I was thankful I only had to stay for one night because the rooms were not the best I had to switch rooms because the AC in the first room didn’t work and the temperature in the room was 80+ degrees The second room was ok The bathroom counter was either stained or not cleaned or both I wore shower shoes and made sure not to walk around with bare feet Also, both rooms smelled odd I will not stay here again

Fourth trip this year Gym is good The employees are so attentive, the location is convenient to where I am growing business opportunities

Restaurants, shopping, parks, trails and LA Fitness Fairfield is so clean, affordable and a repeat stayTrip 5, another easy check in even though I arrived late in the evening 🤩Front counter attendant was super nice Room was clean, cool, and I really like how the tv plays the welcome music

Melissa Carrasco

I would give it a 0 if I could! Worst hotel stay- you ask for room service (cleaning) and it rarely gets done They keep apologizing and say next day it’ll get done and still doesn’t Even when they clean my room it was not all clean

My room was actually left open and I asked for days about who had access to my room that day they said it was being investigated but I didn’t see anything being done Fridge stops working randomly Upstairs hallways smell and are hot

The room and overall facility was nice The staff were friendly and the front desk employees were prompt The breakfast was typical for a hotel, though I believe they may have cooked eggs to order, but I didn’t observe this and the person responsible was usually in the back

The bartender wasn’t friendly Aside from not being friendly, she told me I had to get silverware from the front desk, which was ridiculous as they serve breakfast in the same area and use plastic silverware; I think she just didn’t want to get it, though there was only one other customer in the restaurant I’m giving only give 3 stars as housekeeping was far below what I would expect We stayed Mon-Sat and our room was taken care of one time I understand staffing shortages, and don’t need my room cleaned daily, but access to towels and toilet paper would have helped a great deal Daily, I had to search out towels on my own Luckily the housekeeping office was just up the hall, so if the door was open, I could retrieve towels If the office door wasn’t open I had to wait on the front desk to send someone up, which often took a while Unfortunately it wasn’t until the middle of the night, 2am, that I realized I should have stocked up on TP I’d recommend if there is a lack of staff, have guests put their towels outside the door and someone could go by with a cart, take them, replace them and leave TP I would have been okay with that

Jack Gold

Was not worth $200+/night Took 2 hours to check in Got charged an extra $125 for no reason with no notification

Breakfast was okay but options were limited as was access to the breakfast room If paying this much for a room, guests should be able to grab a cup of tea or other snack outside of breakfast hours Hot tub at pool was drained despite being advertised as openWouldn’t recommend staying here

Nice clean rooms, with comfortable beds, easy parking Breakfast spread was just what we needed and the staff are amazing Night and day shifts both were a pleasure to work with

They even went above and beyond to locate a sentimental shirt that was left there and were able to return it to me Thank you so much! 10/10

Jose Hurtado

Good time here , I wish the digital key worked better at the side entrances and the pool but hopefully that will be fixed The breakfast here was exceptional I enjoyed my feast The cinnamon waffles and veggie omlet sealed it perfectly

I wish they did offer more options though as always The rooms were good but kind of thin walls Only complaint was the coffee not being available 24/7, low water pressure, fridge not cold enough and no one answers the lobby phone during the night

Melissa Pacheco

The customer service from the staff was amazing! The pillows were a different story They were flat and and have seen better days I’m sure We had to double them over for volume

The entryway had both of the bulbs burnt out so our room was dim The coffee maker still had creamer powder on it from the previous guest so I don’t know how thorough the cleaning was
