The university hotel seemed to have the most desirable housing in the area for overnight. The room was clean and comfortable as was the bedding. The restaurant was ideally located on the lake and the food was average. The only drawback was the pool area which seemed more like a budget pool with old worn out lounge chairs no umbrellas....

TDo NOT believe the photos on this hotel. It has a lovely atrium, but the pool is in poor shape and FREEZING cold. The rooms are FILTHY. There was a dead bug in the middle of the bathroom. The rugs were actually greasy and crusty with filth. The sofa bed had some sort of dried goo inside. The room stunk.... More

I usually don't take the time to write a review, but this hotel was not the hotel represented online. I was totally suprised at how run down the outside as well as the inside was. We thought we were at the wrong place. The wallpaper was peeling off the walls, tears in the carpet, broken and old furniture and the... More

I could tell immediately we had picked the wrong place because the pictures on the webaite look totally different than the real thing. Our room was nasty looking, stained towels, wallpaper coming down and... More

I have never before taken the time to write a review but I feel the need to warn people. Total dump! Do not believe the pictures they show on line. The air was broken (w/out of order sign duct taped to box); broken old furniture, yellow pealing wall paper, roaches in the light fixtures, and the curtains were tied back... More

Booked a hotel room for an associate. There was an issue checking in and the reservation wasn't used, but a new one created for my associate. Charged for room and no-show fee. Emailed Karen Garisson, the person I was referred to to solve the issue, twice in 30 days with no response. When I finally called, she said they weren't... More

I have stayed here once before with a group of people I was traveling with and I thought it was pretty gross but a great price (ask for manager's special). When I came back (only because a friend had pre-paid for all of our rooms) I first noticed the sign outside that said UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT. Then when we arrived... More
