There were *so* many things that went wrong with our stay I don't even know where to begin. We stayed as a group, booked for a hockey tournament by one of the moms who had clearly not visited the facility before deciding we were all going to stay there. Starting with the outside and working our way in:
The hotel is nice-enough looking for the most part at the front but when you get around to the side, the door handle to our wing was falling off (and, indeed, during our stay *actually* fell off). The security doors use your room key to allow entry but, apparently, during the day anyone can just walk in as the secure doors were not activated. This is only a two-storey building and there is obvious work to be done from the facing of the building and the blinds/curtains that look like they're barely hanging on.
The room, again, is nice-enough looking but really in need of a few updates. The television is so old that we could not plug in any of our modern-day accessories (games, camcorder). The alarm clock never worked because ... there was nowhere (near the beds) to plug it in. It just sits on the night-table, completely useless. When my husband decided to look around for a place to plug it in, he discovered a half-finished bottle of water lying on the floor near the bed so the cleaning staff had clearly not been thorough. The bathtub faucet had rust all over it, which grossed out the kids.
During our stay, I decided to try the fitness room while the rest of the family went for a swim. What a joke - there is one recumbent bike, one treadmill and one elliptical. The machines were not new but I gave them a go anyway. Ifigured I'd just watch some TV (looked like a newer TV than in our room) but there was no remote anywhere so I reached up to turn it on and discovered that half the screen was blank and the other half was fuzzy ... on every channel ... so watching TV was out too. Then I discovered that the bike was the only one piece of equipment that had a water bottle holder. I gave up after that and sat on the pool deck watching my family swim instead.
Upon arriving back at home, my husband needed to make an appointment to get his back fixed due to the uncomfortable sleep he got as well - he could barely bend that morning.
Overall, just an outdated facility and not worth the money in the slightest.
For $17 a night more, we could have stayed across the street at the brand new Holiday Inn and the kids eat free there (as opposed to paying the same price as an adult buffet breakfast at Ramada). Lesson learned.
