I only stayed for one night at this hotel, so take my review for what it's worth.

I did not get a chance to use the pool; however, it appeared to be clean.

The room I was in was your standard hotel room: average size, and clean. The bathroom was a little small, but the bath tub was huge. It was a very comfortable shower.

Beds were hard, as they are most places, but I still got a decent night's sleep.

The front desk staff had to be one of the nicest staffs I've seen in years at any hotel. After I checked in, there was no one else in line, so I stayed and chatted with the two ladies there for about 10 minutes. They gave all kinds of great suggestions for places to eat and go out to. I personally highly recommend the steak house a few miles south down the main road, I think it was called Woody's? And the bar, Shaker's, right next to the hotel is pretty nice.

Fresh cookies were sat out around 8:00 that night, though I wasn't there to try them.

The complimentary breakfast was very good, mostly cold stuff, but they had a toaster to warm up bagels and waffles in. Cereal, muffins, rolls, fruit. They had it all.

The rooms were nice and clean, as far as a hotel goes. The pillows could have been fluffier. The cleanliness of the hotel was terrible.
The breakfast bar was not properly managed. There was not enough coffee available or milk as well. The restrooms on the main floor by the pool were filthy. The womens had no toilet paper and the stalls were almost unbearable. The corridors were full of garbage as were the stairwells.
The staff was nice. Would I return or reccommend the hotel to others?
No. Definitatly not.
