We were one of many tour groups here. At first the lobby looks impressive, but upon closer examination you can tell it was grand in perhaps 1975. The Brady Bunch furniture in the lounging lobby is laughable 70s green and SMELLS! They keep the lights low in here so you don't notice.
Our room. Oh dear. I was so uncomfortable. Also old and funky smelling, the walls were 70s gold and DIRTY. The carpet, dark green and so dirty and smelly. We had an updated bathroom with a poor tiling job, but some of our group had the pink bathroom from the 70s. No coffee, no watchable TV, no comfy chair, terrible, hard beds, thin walls. If I had booked this and was alone, I would have walked out. (The hotel is HUGE, so check your room--updating seems to be happening...)
The breakfast was terrible as well: Hot dogs heated up as "sausage," runny mushy scrambled eggs, and canned fruit dumped in a bowl.
We also had a grouchy bartender who worked the breakfast the next morning.
This is a ONE STAR hotel. I would NEVER stay here again.
Positives? We did use wifi in the lobby which we were desperate for, and we were in walking distance to many places.
