I picked this hotel because I am a priority rewards member and I can usually rely on HI to be consistent in the quality of lodging but I feel this one fell a bit short. We are a family of six (4 children 2-8yrs). We stayed in a two queen suite with a pull out sofa. It felt super damp when we arrived, smelled funny and took about an hour and a half to cool off. The sofa sleeper was unusable. The springs were broken and the mattress was so thin it felt like you were laying right on the support structure.
We only had three towels and needed to request more. It seemed strange for a room that sleeps six to only have three towels.
The walls were dirty and with a quick wipe were easily cleaned.
That being said, there were some positive aspects to our visit. Tiffany at the front desk was superb and quick to help. She was a true professional. She was very friendly and made us feel at home right away. The pool area was great and very clean. And while the room may have needed some TLC, the linens were clean and the beds very comfortable.
