They did not give me a room and sent me to a different hotel. I didn’t feel like I was being treated like a paying customer and it felt more like I should had been the one charging for my presence and not the other way around.
10,0 Wonderful
Pros:Clean, good breakfast, very helpful staff
10,0 Wonderful
Pros:Nice room at an excellent rate Paid more for other places in the vicinity that were not nearly as nice as the Zen
