If you know me, and you go to this hotel you could only imagine the commentary. Train? Yes...every twenty minutes. Breakfast? Yes....bags of cereal placed on a table. Recently rennovated? Yes....the lobby and pool have been updated / the rooms were clearly forgotten when making that investment.
It boils down to staying in a hotel that deserves the title of a motel, and even that would be gracious.
Thankfully we landed here with fellow baseball families and we all have hystercial stories to share of this past weekend because of the hotel. There are families that paid for rooms that considered sleeping in their cars. We all agree on one on thing......we would never, ever, ever stay here again.
