I really didn't expect anything special here - it was close to the airport and the price was right. But it turned out to be a good experience. I saw that they were remodeling some areas so I was concerned but that was no problem and I am glad they are keeping things updated. The people were very nice and...

Arriving to a hotel undergoing construction was terrible. There was no notice that this property was under renovation and trying to wind around the cluttered, construction hallways with no guidance was a mess. Finally found our room and all was well for one night. The second night, at 40 degrees and wind of 35-40 MPH, we returned to a room...

Pool is open until 11pm, but don't make a peep while you're there. We weren't loud at all, and the mgr. comes to tell us that people are complaining. Their room windows face the pool. What can we do? The microwave in the room didn't work at all. Lots of construction going on, which is the price of progress.

I was a little concerned when I realized that this was the old hotel that had been around for years. It has been totally remodeled. The pool area is nice, and the free breakfast is pretty good as far as free breakfasts go.
