I have never written a review before, this stay changed that. From the moment I walked in things started to go wrong. My 5 year old daughter was performing and dancing in fiestas. We are from Santa Fe. I wanted to make this get away special for her so I made sure to get a hotel with a nice pool....... More

The lobby area is very nice. The rooms are clean but worn out. The couch and carpet looked disgusting with all the stains. They use a heavy chemical to cover up the stink. Windows are dirty and cracked.

We were given the keys to a room that had not been cleaned. It was a wreck. The housekeepers came running over with sheets and towels, but did not appear to have any other cleaning supplies with them. We went into the lobby with the intent of having a glass of wine while we waited for the room. My partner... More

Room was clean, location was good, but not as nice as the photo's. There are 5 different building and all of the ice makers have been removed from all of the buildings. The washing machines in the guest laundry didn't work. The building we were in was primarily rented out to local construction workers on a longer term basis but... More

I expected much better. The room was not so clean, the windows had cracks in the glass, the curtains were frayed and had holes and the couch had stains on it. The sidewalks were all cracked and uneven covered with dirt and bird droppings, The stairs were rusted, the lights on the grounds were busted and unmaintained, the landscaping of... More

Windows were cracked and duck tapped together. Wallpaper peeling off walls. Sheets on bed were put on inside out. Missing smoke detector. No map of the hotel from the front desk person. Checked in for 10 min and checked right back out. Front desk person was great and very apologetic about the room.

If you are looking for a quiet place to sleep and nothing more, then this hotel will be adequate. We were given a complimentary upgrade when we checked in which was appreciated. We brought extra 100 watt light bulbs and outlet extenders to recharge phones at the suggestion of another reviewer. The 20 watt light bulbs in the lamps were... More

We booked here due to the special rates offered during a local hockey tournament. Things were not good from the beginning: although we reserved two suites, only one was available; all three rooms were upstairs and spread out in three different buildings, although all were booked at the same time; the desk clerks seemed indifferent to these issues at check...
