I had high hopes for this property, given the experiences people gave here. When we arrived to check in to our room at about 4 pm, we were told it wasn't ready. The hotel had had a lot of check outs and the staff was overwhelmed. We were very tired because we'd driven about 5 hours, but we had no choice but to wait until they found a room that was ready for us. After we were given a room, we went up to get settled. Our room, which was a suite with two beds in the living room and one pull out sofa, was fine in terms of space. However, I asked for a non smoking room and the one we were given was in the area of the hotel where the smoking rooms were, so the smell of smoke was apparent even in our room. This is a health issue for me but there were no other room available. If you are allergic to animals, be careful because this is a pet friendly hotel. We heard animals barking while we were there. It did not make for a relaxing stay. When we finally got settled, we went down to the pool area to find it filthy with dirty towels everywhere left over from other swimmers and only a few clean dry towels for us. It was clearly not being tended to. The pool was fine, the water was nice, but it was clearly not being monitored. The next morning, we woke up expecting to have a nice breakfast. The staff was clearly overwhelmed by the number of guests at breakfast, guests were clustering around the door to the kitchen, asking for more waffle mix, for more bread, for more of all the things that had run out. I felt sorry for the poor woman trying to serve everyone and take care of the spills and messes that are inevitably left in a buffet line, but this was clearly not a pleasant situation for me as a guest, either. There was no one cleaning tables as they were vacated, and the tables were sticky with left overs from other people's breakfasts. Not pleasant. After breakfast, I decided to go to the little fitness room to get in a quick work out. The weight machine was broken, the cable connecting the weights to the machine seemed to be missing. The tread mill was out of order (there was a sign on it saying so) and so I just used the elliptical. I just thought, in general, that this hotel has serious staffing issues. It could be a really nice experience, but in my opinion, it was not. I thought it was overpriced at $178 a night, and wish I had not booked it.
