We read reviews for this hotel after we had already booked it, so we went in with very low expectations, however, we ended up having a great time. The hotel had good and bad points, bad first.
Bad : They really need to buy new pool furniture! Every lounge chair was broke. The hotel is an older hotel in need of updating and repair. I don't think our AC ever worked right either. One of the attached bars, The Sports Page, is pretty disgusting. We went there because it was advertised as a sports bar featuring off-track betting on horse races. We thought it would be a nice safer alternative to going to Remington Park becasue we could drink and watch the races and not have to worry about driving back to our hotel. The place was so dissapointing. There were some scary looking people in there, and the place smelled like cigarette smoke and B.O. Worst bar I have ever been in.
Good: Our room was clean and spacious. There was a mini-fridge and a microwave in our room. Our bed was comfortable. There are 3 outdoor pools, an indoor/outdoor pool, a hot tub, tennis courts, an exercise room - lot's of things to do at the hotel. There are 3 bars, one is quiet and cozy, another is a country dance club, and the 3rd I mentioned above under "bad". We were given a free drink card at check-in. We were also given free breakfast each day, and it was a fair all-you can-eat hot breakfast buffet in the Brandywine Restaurant, complete with waitstaff. We had the same waitress both mornings and she was very nice. The rooms are quite reasonable..$60 - $75 a night, really a decent rate. There are several good restaurants in the area as well.
To sum it up, if you are a hotel diva, this is not the place for you, but if you're looking for a place that is reasonably prriced with lots of things for the family to do, you may want to give this a try.
