“Never again!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2011

Though the girl at the front desk was nice, it was downhill from there. The pool was empty in July, the broken windows were duct taped. The hall smelled. There was a girl either passed out or dead in the parking lot, so we notified front desk. The room door across the hall from us was open when we got there. All we heard was a tv and all we saw was a leg calf. 4 hours later the body was still there. Dead or passed out? Creepy people, garage sale furniture in rooms. I pick the next one, not him!!!

AVOID THIS HOTEL AT ALL COSTS!!! We were overcharged for one room supposedly because it came with a continental breakfast. They do not have a continental breakfast at this hotel. After I made the reservation I called and talked to someone at the hotel to confirm that we would have transportation from the hotel to Park and Ride and then to Summerfest from there- I explained that that I did not want to keep the reservation if this transportation was not available. We were promised transportation from the hotel to a park and ride so that we could go to Summerfest- this of course DID NOT HAPPEN. One of our friends had to move 3 times because they were given unclean rooms and/or rooms without any sheets on the bed- they had 8 hrs to get the room clean by the way while we were at Summerfest- came back at 2am room still not cleaned. The rooms were filthy even when they had supposedly been cleaned in our other rooms We tried to talk to a manager- but were told they would not be in until the morning. In the morning- no manager- we were told to call back on Monday or Tuesday- each person we talked to gave us a different manager name- Suzy, Sam, Rupaul (who we found out was the owner by accident). IF you are desperate and just need a few hours of sleep and no where else to go- Sleep in your car- you will be better off.

Room Tip: Stay somehere else this place sucks

My wife and I stayed here for over a week. Would strongly NOT recommend it. We had several items worth several hundred dollars stolen from our room by cleaning staff and a neighbouring guest had his watch go missing. Management took no responsibility, would not properly investigate and then became hostile with us when we reported the theft to police. Support staff were on the whole very grumpy and rude. Rooms were not properly cleaned. We also noticed several older male guests arriving late in the evening, with much younger women who looked suspiciously like working girls. My wife was propositioned by at least two drunken men in the hotel hallway. The hotel is priced low and the location is not bad and there is a free shuttle to the airport but the cons outweigh the pros but a large margin.
