“Tree Planting Haven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

This place is the best. I miss it all the time. The slide is fun, The hot tub is nice and they let you drink and hang out in it. The restaurant is good and the bar is dark and dingy and has off sales. Just the way I like it. The beds are amazing! Staff is nice. If only they had laundry machines.

Stay here when other option is not available, as don't feel quite as comfortable for some reason. Rooms are clean, but ones I've stayed in are definitely older. Using Keys seems a little strange in this day and age, but okay. Pool available, and used it once. Was warm and busy at that time! Staff have always been friendly.

We stayed at this hotel in August of 2013. We arrived in our room about two hours after booking the room and the tempurature in the room was at least 26. It was hot and stuffy and we asked the front desk if there was another cooler room and the only option we were given was to move into a different room but there was no guarentee that the room would be cooler. When I asked why they had not turned on the ac when we booked the room, the front desk staff replied that they were saving energy. We contacted other hotels in the area and they were booked or only had $150 per night rooms left so we decided to turn on the wall unit AC in our room and head down to the pool to cool off. In the end I would guess that our room cooled down to about 23 degrees.

The pool area is in serious need of a cleaning. The foam in the hot tub was brown and there was garbage on the tables. The liner in the pool is coming off the bottom of the pool and is dirty.

We did not qualify for a free breakfast as they do not include Sunday in this deal.

The only good thing about the hotel is the bed was very comfortable. We did recieve a $40 discount off the room but it was not enough for us to ever stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else

I am totally disgusted by the rooms, attitude of the staff, and poor quality of food. Wifi did not work. I am surprised that this place is even open. Swimming pool is just gross. I can't think if anything positive to say. The super 8 is cleaner and they appreciate your business

Like other reviewers, I was a bit dissapointed on the bathroom facilities being old, when they had updated the room. They had a "pool" birthday party happening which would be fine....however why do they not have these parties in the down time between check out and check in time... that way it is win win...the hotel can rent the pool area..and if the party is to be finished by check in time the guest can swim in a more peaceful fashion. In addition if poolside you are locked in your room by 10:00pm and cannot use the sitting area outside your room or the pool till the next morning....Also the carpet at the doorway out to the pool was soaking wet in my room...I would have thought the cleaning staff would have noticed it......it was 6 feet into the room

At check in it appeared I was a intrusion...hardly a smile...oh well next time will be looking at other accomodations....

I'm a consultant and have been travelling for the past 15 years. I've stayed at 3,4, and 5 star hotels. The food at most places is very expensive and the serving per plate is mostly very small. At the Westwood, I experienced fine dining, bigger serving per plate at a very reasonable cost. Their food is great. I also found all the staff very friendly.

Room Tip: I prefer to stay on the outside away from the pool. The hotel seems to have had a renovation. The be...

Renovated bedroom but bathroom still outdated and in VERY poor condition.There were 3 filthy towels, the clean ones were old and discolored. Despite the renovation, the linens on the new looking beds were filthy so I had to sleep on top of the sheets. The hotel still uses keys for rooms. The only real plus was that guests are given a complimentary breakfast voucher for the diner that is in the hotel. The complimentary voucher included bacon/ham/sausage, eggs, toast, hashbrowns, a slice or two of fruit, and coffee. Room has a large mini-fridge which is a plus but the cleanliness of the rooms left much to be desired. I will likely stay at the Super 8 a few buildings down next time.
