This hotel has a number of problems that I honestly had never experienced in my previous travels, including mold in the bathroom, peeling wallpaper, paint scratches and chips everywhere, dirty pillowcases, dirty couch, dirty carpet, no fridge (until we complained several times), friendly but unprofessional staff, etc, etc. I understand they may be undertaking some renovations at the hotel soon...

This hotel completely exceeded our expectations. Staff was warm and friendly and the housekeeping staff was very accommodating. With two kids in tow, we needed extra everything and the staff really came through for us. The room was very comfortable and clean and the beds were wonderful - just what we needed after a long drive. I highly recommend this... More

The staff was friendly and efficient. Room was OK. Big spill on the carpet, looked shabby. Bed was comfy. Shower didn't drain. I think it's because the cleaning staff closed the drain, but I didn't stick my hand in the there to find out...ick! Also, there was water all over the floor after my shower.

The staff did their best to accommodate, but this hotel is poor on almost every other front. Bathroom had mold in the corners. Room towels had stains. One of the walls looked like it had been thrown up on. Air conditioner didn't work. The mattress was quite comfortable, but the pillows were not.
