Not a really big deal hotel

Staffs are polite, clean enough,and quiet
Overall the stay was just normal. Nothing surprise or happen. Just it took too long time in queuing with checking out. Since 12 pm is the check out time, and there were only 2 counters in serving? Don't you think it is a bit unprofessional? This bad impact should be improved.
