“Ok stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Check in process was good, we stayed four days three nights with two rooms. The rooms were clean and smelled ok. Our room had a sticky bathroom floor the entire time we stayed there. The mini fridge in our room leaked water all over our food, and pooled into the bottom where it froze. The ac unit had cracked sections in the vent, but it worked just fine. The sheets were not changed the first two days we were there. The rooms were a bit small for one adult and four kids, but it did not affect our stay. The breakfast was standard hotel breakfast, but the organe juice was really not drinkable. I have no clue what the issue was, but it was not good. The key card locks on both the fitness and pool doors were broken. They only way to get into the pool door was to prop it open or go around to the front entrance. We had to have someone come open the door to the fitness room which took a while because there was only one desk clerk at the front when we used it. Not only was that the time problem, but everytime I went to the front desk for anything there was no desk clerk at the front desk even at check out. On the last night the fire alarm went off before 6:00 a.m. in the whole building. Most like everyone I tried to call the front desk, and got the busy signal everytime I called to see what was wrong. I stepped out in the hall, and another guest told me it was a false alarm. It was 10 minutes of beeping later when we got a pounding on the door telling everyone to go outside ~ smoke was detected on the third floor. We went outside and just a few moments later we were able to go inside. Even with all of the issues it was not the worst place we have ever stayed.

We booked for a one night stay . Check in was quick and the desk clerk was very polite and handled changes in my reservations with no issue. She also changed our room so we could be on the front of the property near parking. The property was quiet, beds were comfortable, and the room was clean. Overall a great stay and a great price!
