Front desk clerk was rude. Having to ring the bell at 6:30pm to check-in and receiving the attitude that we just interupetd her from her favorite show only to get the "what do you want" treatment should of have been warning enough. There were no friendly welcomes, no "breakast will be served,...none of those courtesy schpeels (?) that are usual with hotel check-ins when you are handing over your hard earned cash. We specifically asked for a ground floor room and was told "yes, that is available" then we were handed keys to a room on the second floor. A "newly renovated room" no less. Sparing an arguement, we took the keys and made way to the newly renovated room. It reaked of I dont know what, the furnishings were beaten up and scattered, the queen size bed was hard and sheeted with worn down green sheets, (WTF) and the bathroom, well, that is another story. I guess it was'nt part of the renovation program. Rust & mold border the shower stall, tiles are broken, grout throughout is rotted and missing but the hightlight? The bathroom light fixture is filled with dead flies of days gone by,... Oh my. The luxury swimming pool and jacuzzi area is more like bring yer rod, some worms and a pony keg, hang out and fish from the murky waters of the Rodeway River pond, (since you can't see the bottom of the pool), maybe you can land some kind of swimming creature. The jacuzzi however, was warm but put on your frog-suit and jump from liliy pad to pad which should easily be done since I dont believe it has been cleaned since "renovation" - it is loaded with leaves. I have yet to comment on the 'continental breakfast' with fresh waffles'. Can hardly wait. I am not complaining, honeslty, just trying to fore-warn innocent travelers looking for a reasonalbe place to stay and that actually "looks" like the intriging ad used to lure one in. Hell, It worked on me!!! Does anybody remember the movie Falling Down? This place is just that. Without this Lovely Raspberry Vodka Martini I am sipping on (with a lemon twist), I just may go Michael Douglas on this place! Good Luck and Happy Travels! PS: On a lighter note? Yes, the TV and the free WI-FI works as does the ice machine, the doors do lock even though they look like the've been kicked in (or out-which doesn't surprise me) a time or two - Thank Goodness for the internet and A-L-C-O-H-O-L!!!.
