Well, you can't beat the location. just outside the west entrance. That is the best I can say about this place.
I overheard employees saying that they get lots of complaints; no doubt. They said the new owners don't care about the place. Well if they care less about the place than the previous owners, this place will get even scarier, as the previous owners clearly hadn't done anything with it in years.
They also mentioned that only 1 of the 7 Jacuzzi tubs worked.
Cleanliness is the main complaint. The carpet near the sink area had obvious stains to the point that you wanted to keep you shoes on so that you didn't catch anything. The toaster had food stains on the exterior. There were numerous ants crawling everywhere on the sink area daily; I killed about 30 just standing there one morning.
The lamp had the knob missing. I was able to grip the protruding knob with a can opener to get the light turned on. I left it on the first day, thinking that the cleaning crew would notice that they couldn't turn it off and fix it; they just unplugged it!
The cushions on the dirty pullout sofa sunk down so low that our legs sat on the hard rim at the front edge.
The temperature knob inside the refrigerator was missing and set to the coldest temperature. Cream cheese we put in there froze solid by morning. Beer was also frozen.
This may be the dirtiest, poorly maintained hotel I have ever stayed in, but you can't beat the location.
The crab cakes in the bar are very good and are a bargain.
