The hotel staff was rude. The keys had to be reprogramed each day. The rooms has a bed and a TV.. Nothing much else. The door had a large crack under the door so privacy was a huge issue. The hot tub doesn't work and the pool needed cleaning.The neighborhood was scary.

Stayed at this hotel with spouse as part of a larger group meeting there for the weekend. The place is a dump, and the corporate owners should get on this franchisee's back to update this place. Lobby is quite nice, and that's where the deception begins. We requested a refrigerator in the room (extra charge) when the reservation was made...

Rates for a conference were about $70/night including taxes (conference/AAA/Governemnt rate). Room safe had to be unlocked. Tub didn't drain adequately, four of 13 gym machines did not work for duration of my 4 day stay, including that gym TV remote was missing batteries. Desk staff quite friendly and provided leads on multiple places that would deliver different types of...

It's not Marriott, but you get clean bed for very resonable price. Stuff was friendly for the most part... Free breakfast was ok had to pay extra for the hot one but it was worth it.
