When I reserved my room, it clearly indicated on the website that there was a refridgerator and microwave in my room. There was not! The carpet in my room was shredded and dirty. When I took my kids to the indoor pool, I had to go outside to get in. It was a nice size pool and the water was heated but when we went to turn the jets on to the advertised jacuzzi tub, there was no knob. After attempting to turn it on without, I decided to ask at the desk for the knob and that's when I was told, 'the jacuzzi hasn't worked for a long time, we attempted to fix it once but it only worked for a day and we don't know when it will be working again'.

The continental breakfast was the bare minimum! Frozen Eggo waffles is not my idea of continental breakfast. The bagels we were served were 'bagel thins' only about a 1/4 in thick and there wasn't always bread out either. The fruit were mostly bruised, (all of the apples were!) and about the only thing that wasn't pathetic is the cold cereal (and then again how can you mess that up). I guess it's like 'mom's'...you aren't getting anything fresh or good until you eat the crap already served!

The best thing this hotel had going for it is it's location and if the pool area were kept up better, that would be great. By the way, they never put out more than 6 towels at a time by the pool area so we had to repeatedly ask for more towels. Why don't they just put the whole load out of the dryer out like other hotels do? A good cleaning throughout this hotel would do wonders for it. The staff were nice just not helpful.
