The website for this hotel is very deceiving. It probably haven't been updated in years. The hotel is dirty and not well kept. However I must say it has a lot of potential if some of the money was put back into the place. My family and I book a banquet room, a suite and some additional rooms for our family reunion on Aug. 13, 2010. Not only were the rooms dirty the air conditioning was not working in some of the rooms. After several attempts to get a decent room, my family checked out and went to a different hotel. Later in the evening the air conditioning went out in the banquet room. There was also a sighting of a large rat running around near the elevator. This was reported to the front desk however they didn't seem to be surprised. Walking through the hallways was like stepping into a sauna or worst, no air. I would not recommend this hotel.
