Unfortunately I have to do business trips to the area and stay on this property since it is the only place in town other than the casino (which runs over $200 a night).
I will start with the front desk. Three of the people working there are plain rude, I'm not asking you to go the extra mile to be nice but at least don't be rude to your customers.
Had to go downstairs twice because they couldn't find a reservation I had seen the day I checked in and the second time he was extremely rude when I insisted it was in their binder, and surprisingly enough he founded when I insisted.
Breakfast is a joke, really small room with even a smaller selection. For two days straight they didn't even have half of the stuff because "the delivery truck didn't show up", seriously you cant leave a whole hotel without breakfast two days in a row when you have a Albertson's up the street, just unprofessional.
If you have a room by the pool you will get noise all day from kids and families and at night from adults drinking by it.
I found trash under the bed when I checked in which leaves you with that feeling...what else haven't they cleaned? But to be fair housekeeping is far nicer than front desk, they will accommodate any requests you make.
I am a business traveler that usually stays in Marriot or Holiday properties and this property is just a really expensive motel, nowhere close to any of those chains.
