So before I can really say anything, When I stayed in this hotel it was with Breakaway tours for spring break, so we traveled in a pack of about 200 or more students for four nights in March 2013. This hotel is located in a cluster of other hotels (nicer ones might I add) and right outside a double lane freeway. There are quite a few locations nearby, but it can be dangerous trying to get around on foot. When we got there we were told we needed to fill out a damage report, listing every scratch or hole in our room. There was honestly nothing that wasn't damaged in our room, wallpaper was peeling off of the wall, in large pieces, every surface was scratched, curtains had holes in them, and nothing was secured into place. Since the hotel was rented out to students, it was crawling with security guards, who after a few conversations, were really quite nice to us. The woman working the front desk however seemed to have a pole up her *** the whole time. Asking for an extra towel or pillow was absolutely out of the question, and when we went to her telling her that on the third day the maids still hadn't stopped by our room, or even given us new towels/toilet paper, she just stuck up her nose and dismissed us. Also when a vending machine took a students money, it was a 20 minute ordeal and lots of paperwork had to be filled just so he could get his $1.25 back. The manager of the hotel was nicer I will add.The hotel advertised free breakfast, but apparently that wasn't given to people on our trip, and there was no restaurant or fitness centre, at least none that we were able to get to. As for the rooms, charging any devices or plugging anything in was constantly an issue, the only plugs were at the very top of the wall where it meets the ceiling, and on the lamps? Which didn't work half of the time. To turn the plugs on, you had to mess around with three light switches that activated certain lamps, and there were no plugs near the bed or anywhere convenient. It was likely because of all the teenagers staying there, but the hallways constantly smelled of the worst aromas. There were also beer cans and towels and broken lights laying all over the place. Apparently the hotel has three floors, but after walking around the hotel for four days it was still impossible to find anything. The layout is basically three mobile homes attached at random places with hidden doors all over the place. There are hallways that lead to nowhere, and hallways that lead you right back to where you came from, and everywhere looks like the place you just were. The hotel is pretty much basic quality, with absolutely no extras, so if you need somewhere to stay in an emergency, it may be suitable, or you could just go next door and stay somewhere better. PS avoid breakway tours at all costs.
