“Old and beat up”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

This hotel was our last resort as everything was full. The hotel is old and beat up. Our room was clean but the air conditioner didn't work. The lobby and hallways needed paint 5 years ago. The pool was closed for repairs. The bar/restaurant was lame as was the menu basically bar food. The bar staff was very friendly and fast. Overall it's a poor choice and certainly not worth $80 a night.

I read the reviews and figured it couldn't be that bad...it was! No towels in our room, used linens on the beds. We decided not to make a fuss because we literally needed somewhere to lay our heads for a few hours. We came in after the concert, slept in our clothes (with hoods on!), and left first thing in the morning. Would not recommend this stinky (for somewhere listing so many non-smoking signs, the place was very smoky smelling!) to my worst enemy.

Stayed March 2014, travelled with family

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014

Booked the room a month in advance and was informed upon arrival that the pool and hot tub were out of order (which is the main reason we booked here). Was suppose to have a room with microwave and refrigerator did not receive either. The carpet in our room was wet, we assumed maybe they shampooed it but it seemed to get more and more wet each day. Asked for more towels and only received 2 yet there are 4 people in the room. The hallways are dark and dingy with a constant strong smell of marijauna. The rooms are not updated. When you call the front desk they don't seem to care about your complaints. The breakfast was terrible and had no selection and the bar and grill inside the hotel was awful and expensive. I would NOT recommend this hotel to anyone. I would suggest spending a little more money and staying in a better nearby hotel.
