first red flag is this hotel doesn't have it's own website - not a very well established business. during the overnight visit we came across several inconveniences:
upon arrival to the hotel, we noticed the previously used sign for the "Radisson" had not been completely taken down; the front entrance was not very well lit; when we walked into the lobby, a customer with 3 young children had received a room with someone else already staying in it; the lobby was not yet finished from the renovations that were supposed to be completed november 1st, it was completely empty and all fire alarm alert lights were missing. The room across from ours had a piece of paper taped up with the number written on it. the room was nice except the pay per view was not working. all of the websites we used said that there was a pool, but it was also still under construction (thanks for the warning), the only saving grace for this "establishment" was the free wifi and breakfast which was most likely their way of making up for their shortcomings. without it this would have surely been 1 star.
overall, it wasn't worth our money. choose another hotel, no matter what kind of "deal" you come across. Or maybe call ahead and be sure all services are in good working order.
