This is the lowest review I have ever given. I will start out with the positives...it is easy to get to, and we booked with points, so it was free. The staff was friendly, it's very close to restaurants, and that's where the positives end. The hotel was older and very worn. The pool was closed for "repair and cleaning". As you could see from previous reviews, the bathroom is tiny and hard to manage with a family of four. The door opens in, so it's hard for even one person to use the toilet and shower. If you are a larger person at all, good luck. There also seemed to be a permanent noise machine outside in the marking lot to maybe scare off birds? it ran all night long. The room was hot (air conditioning didn't keep up) and the breakfast was a scandal! Thank goodness we travel with a cooler. Kids ate the pancakes which were fine, but I opted for something out of the van, and the coffee was pretty skunky. We drove to a gas station to get some instead. Very thankful we only had to stay one night. Book elsewhere!
