Their are two long lanes for autos at the front door for check in. We pulled in one of the two behind a car of people that were checking in. A third car pulled in the second lane for checking in as well. When we were finished checking in, the car in front of us hadn't been moved and the car in the second lane was empty with owners nowhere to be found. Result? not able to get our car out without backing it down the two land driveway the full length of the building. the male reception people were poorly dressed. worn, dirty looking levi's, etc. Just taking the cool image stuff way too far. A half empty large bottle of ice tee in our mini fridge, apparently from the last guest. No signs around the refreshment area to indicate rolls, cookies, coffee, etc is free or what the cost is. We asked and learned that everything had a price, not free, and what was required was to take whatever you wanted over to the front desk where they would tell you what it cost. The make up room sign would not stay on the door handle. Maids tried to enter our room while we were in bed and made up our room while we were gone even though we indicated with the sign that we did not want people in our room. The room bill at checkout was different (higher) than our agreed expedia amount. enough already!

It’s a new hotel, pet friendly, very nice place to stay in the area especially if you bring your pet with you. The only problem we experienced is the AC unit in our room. It cannot stop/adjust to the temperature setting and I ended up turning it off in the middle of the night since it’s getting too cold.
