Let me start by saying its a lovely new hotel with big rooms and comfy beds, in a terrible area of town. The continental breakfast has a bit to be desired with the watered down juice and scary looking eggs, sausage patties and waffles in the warmer.
The window in our truck was smashed when we went to leave in the morning and personal items had been stolen. We were also left a little gift (bag of crack cocaine) on the back seat. If we had known that break ins were a problem, or that the hotel was in such a poor area of town, we would have brought everything in out of the vehicle and parked right in front of the hotel. Unfortunately the staff didn't inform us when we checked in that the break in's had started several days prior with 3 vehicles being broken into and one being stolen. There were two other vehicles other than ours that was broken into the same night. When I reported it to the front desk they didnt appear surprised and were not willing to help us out. The manager was not in but I requested that the clerk call him as the police and my husband were going to want to talk to him Jason, the manager, was very condescending and rude towards my husband and made it out that it was our fault that our vehicle was broken into. The hotel is apparently putting video survallance and better lighting in, but it doesn't appear by other reviews that this has happened as of yet.
If you do stay at this hotel, bring EVERYTHING out of your vehicle into the hotel and park as close to the lobby as you can. One of the vehicles that was broken into while we were there was parked right along the roadside.
