Easy access from interstate, but very dimly lit parking. Repainted room but bathroom fixtures apart from wall and poorly repaired. Floor rug clean. Killed crawling insects next morning, desk clerk dis-interested. Long dark hallway with overhead lights covered in cobwebs. Need we go on? Don't eat the free breakfast. Uncovered cereal with barely warm others. Cobwebs everywhere.

Even after reading all the bad reviews of this place, I went ahead and booked the treehouse suite for one night at a whopping $180. I thought our 3 year old would enjoy the neat room and the pool and play area. Never again. The decoration was pretty cool, I have to admit. But with no windows to the outside... More

The overall cleanliness of the room was ok, but extremely dated fixtures and old mattresses that need replaced, was not able to sleep well despite being exhausted. The bathroom in my unit however looked to have been recently updated, and the water pressure in the shower was good. Breakfast could be better with a little more attention, the egg discs... More
