Had an awful stay. Beds were saggy, rom was smaller than advertised and fire alarm kept us up peeping all night. I ended sleeping in the car. Would not recommend going here to anyone.

Thank you for airing your feelings. What a pity you didn't think to call Management who would have changed the battery in the Smoke alarm immediately.
