We stayed here for a baseball tournament in Battle Creek. Twelve families for two nights.
Rooms were very nice.
The problem we had and the reason our team will NEVER book here again was the hall monitor manager. While we did our best to respect the rules, we did not appreciate a stranger chastising our players for being unaccompanied in the hallways. These are 12 year old boys traveling from room to room or down to the pool to be supervised there. At one point the hall monitor was sitting in the chairs by the elevator just waiting for the kids to do something wrong.
We found out that the hotel frequently has pilots stay here and these pilots are required to log a certain number of hours of sleep per night. If you as hotel administrators are equipped with this information then it seems reasonable to plan accordingly. House the pilots in one area of the hotel and the baseball teams in another. Instead our team of twelve were divided throughout the 3rd, 4th and 5th floors.
In addition, we planned a team BBQ on the Saturday and ensured it was okay to do this with the manager, only to be told the gated area we were cooking in did not meet some licencing requirement and had to move 3 hot BBQ's outside of a seemingly perfect space.
Now, with all that said the breakfast was great and the rest of the staff were always VERY friendly and helpful.
While we frequent many hotels for sporting events we are very aware of the "normal" rules, such as mini-sticks and rough housing, but this was just too serious for our team to want to endure it next year.
P.S. the pool is tiny and in such a small area that it is deafening to be in for very long.
