A group of four of us stayed during the IDBF dragonboat festival. We had booked ahead of time and got a price of 179$ for the room. When I checked the hotel website, and the price has decreased to 149$ per night, I asked for the new (updated) price. The hotel refused to honor the price change, and started spouting off rules of why we couldn't cancel and then re-book. I was a little upset at this (most other hotels would have honored a lower price).
In any case, the hotel was rather good. We were happy with the free breakfast which was WAY more than muffins and juice. The room was nice, but I wouldn't book it for the view (we were looking out over a parking lot/highway); we were happy that the maid service provided towels for quad occupancy without us having to ask every day. The managers reception was a nice touch. The pool was too warm (they heat it) for the climate - it's not very relaxing to enter a pool that is warmer than the ambient temperature.
The best part of the hotel was the ease of access to our race site (literally across the street). Dining options within 2km of the hotel were good.
