Well I must say that there are some good things about this place. There is a 7-11 about a 1-2 minute walk right here for snacks and drinks when you want them. It has a pretty big pool that is pretty private from others. They have a few picnic tables for outdoors with a grille. Rooms have a microwave and fridge in the rooms. There is a Denny’s right here if you like that chain. I went in and my waitress smelled like she hadn’t taken a shower in a week, and a table behind me was have a belching contest and no one said a thing so I just got up and walked out. I went to the local grocery store and bought me a microwave meal and some other things and came back to the room to eat. There are other restaurants around, but you have to drive and keep doing annoying U-turns to everything.
Now that’s it as far as the nice things go. The interior décor is flat out retro. All rooms exterior entrance, so there are no elevators. There is no Wi-Fi signal what so ever, not even on the lobby. They do have Ethernet connection and the guy at the front desk let me borrow a cord as well. Maxwell house coffee in the rooms, I think coffee brand is a big deal as I love it. The beds aren’t great, but not horrible.
All in all I would not recommend a friend or family to stay here, but if you are on a strict budget and don’t care then it’s a ok place. I was so tired from traveling all day and didn’t feel like looking elsewhere so I managed to survive. My recommendation to Management would be to PLEASE take care of your customers by offering a sufficient Wi-Fi for the whole property. I travel a lot and feel that if you offer and advertise free Wi-Fi then you should have it available for all rooms whether you’re next to the lobby or the last room in the wing. At least you have Ethernet though.
