We used to go here when I was a kid, and it was a great place to stay. That was over 20 years ago. We went recently for one night as a "nostalgic" trip and the stay was miserable. We tried 4 different rooms - each had it's own problem. Most smelled bad, had excessive wear (things like the TVs... More

Booked what we thought was a budget hotel stay. This place was much better than expected for the price. For about $80 we had a massive room with sofa and table. The grounds were nice and the lobby was quite upmarket.

The checking process was very pleasant. The rooms were clean and orderly. The overall feel though was of a place that could use some TLC. There was a large purple stain in the bathtub and on the bathroom floor. The ceiling had water stain indicative of a active leak. All in all an acceptable place to stay for a night.

The location is great, the grounds and hotel are beautiful, however it urgently needs upkeep, attention to small details that a handy man could easily fix. We had a suite, very disappointing...the pillows not comfortable at all, on the contrary. The shower curtain was hooked in one area with a safety pin, the towel had a hole with black marked... More

If you just need a place to sleep this hotel is ok. The rooms are old and musty and in one room we rented the heat didn't work. The staff tried to be helpful but the facility is just run down. The breakfast is terrible. You are better off going to sonic.

I learned a lot about the hotel and I don't recommend staying there...at all. The prices may seem like a steal, but spend a little extra somewhere else and save yourself a bad experience. Breakfast isn't fresh whatsoever, and you're bound to feel gross after eating it. The danishes barely meet the criteria for acceptable consumption, as they can be... More

Breakfast was virtually non existent. Had to wait a quarter of an hour for coffee. The breakfast area and adjoining bathrooms were filthy. Pool not operational. WiFi in rooms not functional. No new towels in room; must call desk. Avoid.

The hotel could have been nice if had not been neglected for so long. Windows broken, tiles cracked, tub permanently stained, blankets and comforter threadbare. Breakfast was a joke, non dairy creamer and toast or day old Danishes. The exterior was quaint but in need or major overhaul. I hope the management reads this and decides to spend some money...

You can tell this place used to be special, the original management investing in good looking buildings and interiors appropriate for the area. My guess is the last 5 to 10 years they've milked this place and let the maintenance and upgrading slide. There are many things I really want to like about this place. While somewhat modern the faux... More

The Good: Room was clean and available. Okay place to stay and sleep. Staff was friendly. The Bad: Hot Tub is broken and has been for a while. It was more cold then the pool. Wifi was on but no one was able to connect to it. When I brought this up the Front Desk explained that it was not... More
