It's an ongoing joke w my kids that I made them stay here. Anytime I book a hotel now they ask, "Is it a Jack Lund?" Ok the pool is a tar pit. The train is loud and passed nearly every hour. I did not shower here and we all slept in our hoodies (with them pulled over our heads... More

My wife and I prebooked the room for four nights. After using... More

Not only it was dirty but also stinky especially the bathroom. The shower did not work but we would not have jumped in anyway. Towels... More
