We were suppose to stay here for 4 days. We checked out on day 2. We called ahead and asked if there were any wedding or special functions that would make the place noisy. We wanted to have some R & R with my husband. They assured us there was nothing. However early on Sunday morning at around 7:30 we were awakened by a keyboard. We find out after the fact that there is a church there on Sunday mornings so we were "blessed" to have very loud keyboard and music from that time until after 1:00pm. We requested room service and the food prices were almost the same as some of the 4 star hotels we have stayed in. Very expensive and yet you do not get the quality of food that you are paying for OR the service from the hotel staff. Not to mention, it's football season so if you are enjoying a movie on your satellite TV then know that at a certain time the channel will be switched to football for the people in the bar that want to watch the match. You're stuck watching that same football match or local stations. Not very impressed with that at all. They also advertise for WiFi - there is none. I must however, compliment the front desk staff. They were nice and professional. The room we stayed in was nice and clean and up to date. But with high prices, for food, not being able to watch television, no wifi and ordering food and not having what you ordered, I was very happy when my hubby said "Let's leave this place babe."
