I'm not sure even where to start. I'll start with the good, check in was easy although the lobby smelled like chlorine and cigarettes. My husband, daughter and I got to our non-smoking room, after a 15 hour trip (half way point to our new home in the South). Being exhausted from our trip, we found our room, noting many... More

There was barely any selection and most of it was stale. The pool was closed. The fitness room was empty - being "re-done" at some point according to the front desk attendant.... More

The room was dirty, there were burn holes in both comforters and all over the floor. I mean even for the price this was pretty crappy.
