This hotel is like stepping back into the 1970's...tired and dreary. At no time during my 3-day stay did I feel "welcomed."
There's no elevator, so I carried my bags to second floor. The hallways were warm and damp and smelled from cigarettes.
My room? Red stains on the carpet and dingy furniture.
Hungry? Go elsewhere. Servers were inept, at best. The food is barely edible. Lucky for you, the restaurant (I use the term loosely) is only open for breakfast and dinner. The restaurant closes at 9pm and the bar closes at 10pm. (The restaurant and bar are co-located.)
The lobby has a fireplace, TV, free newspapers, and free coffee. The outdoor pool area is very nice.
My group used a hotel conference room (the room was a disgrace.)
No matter what I asked for during my stay, the answer was "No", or "We can't do that", or "I don't know."
