    It was not worth the rate

    My fiancé and I came in very late to our hotel. After nine hours of driving we were ready to go to bed. Check in was friendly and fast. When we got to our room we found out they placed us next to a venue that was holding a party. It was very loud. We walk into the room and it is apparent that no one had been in the room in at least a week. There were a dozen take out menus scattered in the entryway. The whole room had begun to dust over. The room itself was so small. Definitely shop around a bit

    Not good at all customer service extremely poor elevator is not working and you can’t even get one free cup of coffee and it’s more than 1/2 mile to the Riverwalk

    4/5 Good

    Close proximity to the Riverwalk and downtown area. Friendly staff and very helpful. Would stay there again.

    Elevator was not working (did not go up only down)when we arrived which made it challenging to get up to our room with our mother who’s in a wheelchair
