I got this hotel through a booking website and got a very cheap price, so I wasn't expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised! Although I didn't use the pool, it looked very inviting. It was obvious that the rooms could use a little renovation, but everything worked and was kept very clean for me. I stayed 4 nights, so if anything were going to go wrong, it should have, right? I was right next to the elevator, and even that didn't bother me during the night. Very nice stay. There were only two things I could have wished were better. I wanted to use the "business center" (two computers with a printer) but there was water on the floor. They had it taken care of right after I reported it, but kind of scary around electrical things, so I didn't use it. Also, they have a restaurant inside the hotel, but no "continental breakfast." Still, for the price, what could I expect? I did not try the restaurant. Also, I don't know where other reviewers were staying, but my front desk clerks were very courteous and helpful and said "Good morning" to me every day. Of course, I was friendly to them - could that be the difference? I would recommend this hotel to anyone as long as they didn't have to pay full price. It's not the place it obviously could be. Also, it looks like it could be great for conventions. It appears to have lots of meeting rooms on the ground floor.
