I rarely write negative reviews but feel that one is warranted in regard to this property. If you are contemplating a stay at this location, it is likely that it is part of a company retreat or other organized meeting; thus, you may have no choice but to attend. With that in mind, I offer the following review. This is by no means on par with other conference/hotel properties that I have stayed at. It is very bare-bones, almost spartan in accomodations, with few amenities offered in even the most basic of hotels. It is much like staying on a college campus in dorm accommodations. In fact, the furnishings seems to resemble those in my '80s college dorm! This is not the kind of facility where you would consider adding an extra night or two to your stay for pleasure/business purposes, or for bringing your spouse/family along. There is no room service, so if you arrive after the dining service hours are over then you are limited to the vending machines. I could find no Starbucks or other coffee/beverage service other than what was offered by my meeting. There is an on-site bar with reasonably priced drinks; not sure if they serve food. The cafeteria-style dining menu was not bad, all things considering, but not great either. The layout is very confusing and difficult to navigate; however, the staff were very helpful in providing directions or navigation. Internet was very spotty and frustrating to use; I resorted to using my own hotspot. I agree with others' very articulate comments regarding the location, deisgn, rooms, layout, amenities, etc. In sum, I would not voluntarily stay at this facility again.
