I stayed at this location for one night on a business trip, staying here over my normal choice as I needed to top off my Priority Club account.
The location was easily found by our GPS and the hotel is in a quiet area with free parking.
There is a large nicely decorated lobby. Also on the first floor is the restaurant and a bar. There is also a nice business center (free) with 5 or 6 computers and a printer. The hotel has a very nice pool and hot tub area on the second floor as well as two exercise rooms, one for weights and one for aerobic equipment. The aerobic equipment does not have individual TV's but the room is otherwise well equipped.
The one thing I can really say about this hotel, it is the most spread out hotel of any hotel I have stayed in outside Vegas. The hotel is set up as a series of 6 (I think) buildings around the central pool area. (All indoor corridors.) It took me something like 10 minutes to walk to my room and the hallways can be rather confusing. A bit too stretched out for my taste....be sure to ask for a close room! Walking to the room, the carpet in the halls is rather dirty but the rooms seemed clean.
While I was in the hotel they lacked any WI-FI service, and the wired service did not work. I said I would not be not staying here again due to that, but while working in the business center I was talking with a tech who was working on the WI-FI rework and he said that all rooms will have WI-FI by the end of the week and it was a top level upgrade. . There is a charge for WI-FI, but I am unsure what it is as it was not yet available.
The rooms have old style 27" CRT TV's...time to update those. There is a work desk in the room and the climate control works well and you can leave the blower motor on for white noise while the climate control is still functioning. There was no discernable noise from nearby rooms. I can not comment on the size of the rooms as they upgraded me to a suite and provided executive lounge access. Even in the suite, the bathroom was incredibly outdated, had a very low shower head, mold in the tile, and was VERY small. In a brief look in the regular rooms, they appear to be small.
I did have full breakfast in the main restaurant. I am unsure what the price was, as it was part of our corporate rate but the food was very good. All things said there are better options in the area, but this is not a bad second choice.
There are many dining options in the area and some may be within a moderate walking distance.
For the right price this is not a bad choice but I would only at a slightly lower price versus the area competitors.
