I booked this hotel because I am a Choice Hotels member...however, I will never stay here again because of safety and cleanliness issues. Both side and back door locks were broken, which allowed anyone, guest or not, to come in during the night. After my husband and I had stayed the night and were out the next day, we realized...

Since it was last minute we had prepaid and they would not refund. The room was by a back door outside that didn't have a lock on it. I complained right... More

10 family members here for a weekend at Adventureland. Our King bed room was a roomy suite, the 2 double queen rooms were a little small. The front desk staff were all very helpful and friendly.
