We didn't have advance reservations as we weren't sure where we were staying. The front desk clerk was very nice and helpful in checking us in. (Us = my parents and a dog, and myself and three kids)
The kids and I had a King Suite with a Queen sofa bed. The room was very spacious. The king bed was pretty comfy. I am sure from the looks of it the sofa bed wasn't as comfy, but this mama got the king. :) During the night, I rolled over and one of the pillows smelled strongly of men's cologne. I should have cared at the time, but I was so tired, I didn't.
The pool was outdoors and when I told the kids it wasn't heated, they decided not to try it.
The breakfast was really good. There was a lot of food to choose from. (eggs, sausage, cereal, oatmeal, toast, etc)
One bonus for this hotel was the laundry room right outside our hotel room. I was very pleased to be able to wash our clothes. The front desk had small boxes of Purex for $1.00. I think it was a total of $3.00 or $2.50 to wash and dry our clothes.
The hallways were a bit hot and stuffy, but with the air conditioning units in the room, our stay was pleasant. (my parents were in a queen room and said that once they turned their unit off, they were unable to turn it back on, but they cracked the window and it was fine)
Close to restaurants (walking distance) and a minit mart.
I wouldn't be opposed to staying there again.
