I booked the hotel for me and my wife for a 5 year wedding anniversary. I originally booked the "Union Room Suite" but when we got to the front desk someone cancelled and she offered us a different room at no charge. The front desk lady even went as far as showing us our room i booked and also the extra room she offered us. We took the bigger room (Of course) which was called "Sign of the Buck".
Now i did read some reviews on all the rooms by the main road is very noisy. Which was 100% true. IT WAS SOOOOO loud and trying to sleep was unreal...Between the bar on the right hand side, the people outside laughing, yelling, car alarms going off, trucks going by etc etc it was almost impossible to sleep. My wife actually had to sleep on the couch in the little living room area since it was so loud. Your room is dead quite also like im talking you could hear a pin drop. Which is any other situation it would be excellent. My advice is to bring a box fan or some type of sleep app for your phone to drown out the noise if you have trouble sleeping. (Which is what i had to do...)
Figuring the noise couldn't get any more annoying from outside. The people above us you could hear walking around since the floor would creak non stop. You could also hear them taking a shower with the water running and also when they would flush the toilet..... It was like a flash back of when i lived in an apartment house and i could hear almost everything.
The hotel really really really lacks Noise-Reduction. We could even hear people walking up and down the main stairwell. I would maybe come back again but only for a room that was away from the main road, maybe in the back. No joke people, please do research on the room you get and where it's located in the hotel, also what floor your on.
