So we stayed here for two days while visiting family over a recent holiday and it was an odd place, not bad, just kind of odd. It is broken up into buildings and we were placed in the back with what we were told was a "renovated" room but that could have only meant that a flat screen TV had been added. The rest of the room looked like it was out of the 70s but it was big and clean, and reasonably quiet (we could hear people walking above) so not really a problem. But it also seemed like there were lots of other rooms available, some had crazy prices online, and it felt odd to be shuttled off to the back of the hotel when the place was half full. The pool was very nice, though service sketchy and one person rude (one lunch server was excellent in contrast) and the place felt a little unsecure -- no locked doors going to the outside and a fence was wide open that led out to an adjacent apt building that made me a little nervous. The area is safe but this just made it feel more like a low-end motel, though the prices were definitely not low-end. It is a quirky place, though, which I like so I might stay again but only if the rates were reasonable, definitely not worth paying premium rates.
