I will admit the price and location swayed me into booking this hotel for my 9 year son and I. Be warned, this hotel is old. We had to switch rooms 3 times. #1 was over the kitchen area and the room smelled like propane gas and was filthy. Mold on ceiling and holes in the walls. #2 had pubic hairs on bathroom floor, dried urine on toliet, mold in tub, mold on ceiling and water on the carpet around the AC unit and under the bed by the window. The room also smelled like a sewer. Management finaly put us into a suite which was simple but clean. The pool did not have chlorine, was warm and had a "salty" taste if it got in your mouth (most likely from the users sweat). The pool area was rundown aand in need of some work. The staff were very plesent and TGI Fridays were the saving grace for our stay.
