Booked a room here after reading the wonderful reviews. We have traveled all over the country, and appearances were a bit deceiving. We came to get a decent night of sleep. Unfortunately for us, it is the start of Spring break and EVERYONE and their many kids were staying here.
On the plus side, the room was large (though since we were on the poolside, don't expect to try to sleep prior to the closing hours with the noise from the kids playing.) Room was very clean, though the two type of toilet flushing (to conserve water) where you have to push the button for 'liquids' or 'solids' was not our preference. Hot breakfast with many selections (if you don't mind waiting with 100 other people in line). By the time we got thru the line, the food on our plates was cold because the lobby was so cold.
On the minus side, 1) the abundance of people in the lobby for breakfast reminded us of the "cattle call" on cruise ships, with about the same noise level, wait lines with styrofoam plates, and two waffle irons for the whole crowd. 2) it was advertised that hot popcorn is in the lobby. On the three times we went there (morning, 1:30pm, 3pm) there was none made. What was there at 7:30pm was burnt. 3) The "spa" outside was not even the 104 degrees that hot tubs are so not very hot, and the "heated" pool was that warm so we skipped those. 4) we have a wonderful jackhammering that we are hearing this morning which is convincing us another night is out of the question because we just want to chill. 5) The pillows in the room are very fat, so if you are used to sleeping with something thinner, bring your own. 6) The beds have some sort of ripples (perhaps a pillowtop) and between the mattress and pillows, we barely slept. 7) You still hear doors slamming and footsteps in the room so not as soundproof as we would have liked.
In comparison to a Le Meridian, Biltmore, or Drake hotel, we would rank this under them and thus the three star rating.
