The beds were soft, the sleep quality was good. That's what I cared about, the rest wasn't enough to bother me since I went there just to sleep. The front desk attendant was very nice and sweet. The room smelled like it had been cleaned. The main pool worked fine. All the elevators were broken except for one on the... More

Wi-fi poor. Shabby exterior. Broken hot tub. Dirty pool with a dead bird and a hornets nest to contend with. Hornet's nest at edge of pool so made me very nervous. Outside door handle came off in your hand when we tried to exit room. Had to slam the door two or three times to get it to close. Room... More

The poor reviews for this hotel are right on target. Everything that could go wrong did. However, the staff was helpful and very pleasant especially Noreen. Noreen cleaned bathrooms, moved chairs, cleaned the outside pool, handled the breakfast bar and handled a multitude of other problems. Give her a SALARY INCREASE IMMEDIATELY!

Definitely is an outdated property. The web site stated it had undergone a total renovation in 2014; the renovation is still underway and only applies to rooms on the first floor. We did check in on the first floor and you can tell that they are TRYING to renovate, but certainly not all the way there yet. We travel often... More

Made the mistake of driving around the backside of the building.... painted window tint on windows, peeling...outside doors looked like they were kicked in at one point. Black mold in showers, three ice machines, only one was not broken....Dont do it!

If they allowed, I would give this place 3.5 stars. I think it should be rated somewhere between average and very good, since I experience no issues I will give it the benefit of the doubt. I stayed here back in April, but I am just now getting around to writing this review. The staff members I had dealings with... More

I stayed here with my wife, for two nights while visiting all the wonderful sights in the area. It looks very grand from the outside, and inside it looks it looks very good too, but on closer inspection, certain things are a little sad. It was once quite stunning, but now it seems neglected, or under-used. The room we had... More

This seems to be a conference center built in the 1980s that's seen better days. It's in need of a major renovation. Guest amenities such as soap, linens and the breakfast bar were minimalist. In its favor, it was quiet and back from the highway. It's centrally located.
