Very poor service. It took 30 minutes to get checked in. I checked in at 11:45pm and they had to check to see if the rooms were ready! The man at the front desk referred to his staff as "foreigners". Just do yourself a favor and stay anywhere else but here.

Through a tournament travel agent we had to select from 4 different hotels. Unfortunately for us, we chose this one. From the moment we got there we had issues. Initially the rooms weren't ready on time, then our keys didn't work, and the pool was closed. As I was going down to have the key redone, I heard people talking... More

This hotel has changed hands quite a few time over the past few years. I have stayed here when it was a Radisson, Crown Plaza, Crown and now Red Lion. Once the Crown Plaza dropped this hotel it has quickly been on the decline. On a whim I hopped on Hotwire and saw a 3 ½ star hotel advertised as... More

Deceptively ranked 3 1/2 stars, I was nervous just walking in the parking lot. The check-in employee was nice and seemed to be doing his best to handle the lobby full of people demanding to speak to the manager. The lobby and conference room area seemed somewhat updated and nice; however, the rooms themselves are a different story. There is... More

Seriously. First off the front desk was very nice initially. But that was my only pleasant experience with this swamp. As soon as I entered the elevator it smelled like Marijuana. I'm a physician and I know the smell. The 4th floor reeked of something that I can't place the smell of. Then to top it off, our room keys... More

This place was advertised as 3.5 stars.. I wouldn't even give it 1 stars. The tub was dirty with hair in it. My daughter has asthma and the room was full of smoke even though it was advertised as no smoking. The floor were disgusting and the furniture had stains (food and otherwise). Please don't waste your time. Just don't... More

We have stayed at this hotel every year for the past 5 years. It's unreal how far this property has declined. I don't believe one thing has been touched since we started staying here. It used to be a decent (maybe a little dated) Crowne Plaza. We stay for a convention and I wouldn't pay more than $50 per night... More

Please think twice before staying at this hotel. The adjoining water park is clean and fun for an afternoon but I would stay at a near by hotel instead. There was trash and spilled liquids in the front lobby when we checked in and it was still there the next day when we checked out. The first room we were... More

Ok where do I even start. I write my reviews as neutral as possible but this one is hard. First would I recommend anyone stay here? The answer is NO... I wouldn't let anyone I know or love stay in this place. Read on if you want details: check in was smooth for me BUT there were two other parties... More
