“Not the best but not the worst!”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

This was a little staycation for my family. Check-in was ok; the room was ok but a bit dated. The room was clean but apparently the cleaning person likes to use a bit to much furniture polish...some areas were very oily. Very limited channels and no premium channel available. Beds need to be updated. We had 2 double beds. The one my son slept on was ok; however, the one my husband and I shared had a dip in the middle. Small microwave, decent mini-frige, small flat screen TV were nice. Free breakfast was offered. They had a nice combination of hot breakfast (eggs, sausage, gravy, etc.) and continental breakfast items. Pool was indoors but seemed deeper than what was stated (ranged from 3 feet to 6 feet). Housekeeping took a while to clean the room. One day, we left the room around 10 a.m. and did not return until after 5 p.m. and the room still had not been cleaned. The next day we were gone for most of the day. When we returned after 10 p.m., the beds were made but the bathroom didn't seem like it was touched. (no replacing toiletries or towels).
Overall, it was not the worst that I have been to, but it's not the best.
