Don’t take off your shoes !!

Location is great. After that a lot to be desired. Zero attention to detail. We booked 2 nights only stayed 1. Stairs from 3rd floor to second seemed unstable. Pool and jacuzzi were very small. Elevator was sketchy and dirty. Great place for frat party. Not so much for alone time with my wife.

Stayed 2 nights in Aug 2019
