We checked in around 10PM and no one was at front desk. It took quite some time for someone to appear. She said she was doing laundry which was in the back of the building. They have a system where you call them up. Unfortunately we unloaded our car only to realize our keys didn't work. So back up to the front to call her back up to activate keys. This was a major hiccup in their system.
Once we got into the room it was extremely nice. Every single thing was new from bedding to mini fridge. I actually stayed here 36 years ago and couldn't believe it was the same place. The room also had plenty of electric outlets which with our family we have cell phones, laptops, Ipads, etc.
The breakfast was very good with many choices. The room also seemed very quiet, even though there were races going on at the fair grounds we couldn't hear them in our room.
We stayed 2 nights and our room never got new towels or cleaned up even though I left the maid service tag out. I had left a tip so whoever didn't do it lost out!
The employees were very nice and friendly but just a few problems overall.
