The room was fine. Smelled a bit musty but I always travel with a scented candle for this reason. The pool area was nice and big. The rooms were alright but the bathroom wasn't cleaned well. Someone else's hair in the tub. The beds were comfortable. Included breakfast would have been nice.

I agree with the other reviewers saying this hotel is in need of renovations. My bigger frustration is the rec center in the middle of the facility that's basically right outside all the rooms.
