(ILL GO IN TO DETAIL IN THIS REVEIW)
So the school district booked us at this hotel for regionals for all the swim teams. It was dingy looking at first because of the tacky blue paint on the outside. Inside is pretty neat, it's a little 90's but it doesn't harm the eye too much. This is a fun hotel for kids and teens, most definitely. It's such a strange hotel but it brings great memories of the time with my team at regionals.
We came around February the 7th, the district put some of the lucky ones inside the hotel (suites I suppose) and the rest outside the hotel. The outside is like one huge motel. A FREGGIN MAZE TO FIND YOUR ROOM and extremely annoying when it's 15 degrees outside.
The rooms were okay. Very small and the windows were easily opened so one could easily sneak out or break in (I forgot my key and my friends were being stupid and were refusing to open the door for me, so I easily came in through the window, they were in awe haha) also very dark. The bathrooms were the worst I think, small and the lights in my room would flicker, leaving you in the dark while peeing.
The food was AMAZING. especially for the hungry swimmer, it was a large variety of breakfast items to choose from, coffee, milk, water, a soft drink, or orange juice to choose from. And the dining area isn't too shabby either, it's basically a buffet.
The jacuzzi and both pools (indoor and outdoor) were the BOMB. honestly! They were super hot even the one outside was as hot as the jacuzzi, and it was at least 20 degrees outside, which was a great experience!
And lastly the play area was fun, even for us high school kids, the Ping pong, the mini golf and the jungle gym were all enjoyable.
The only bad thing about this hotel was of course the outside rooms and the dingy people that stay there, if you are a woman alone in this hotel do not risk it, there's strange people everywhere, weird old men that stared at the high school girls. It's not like they did anything or they were cons or anything but the people were strange.
Also avoid staying at hotels in early February.. Because it's regional season for swimming and wrestling a like. Let me tell you, we are anything but quiet, we're restless, reckless, careless and extremely loud.
