My family stayed for 2 nights too long. The beds were very hard. The pull out couch was actually more comfortable even with the skinny mattress on it. The hotel was very sketchy. My husband says he thinks homeless people actually live there. Do not waste your money. We left asap.I give this hotel a thumbs down. ..

We truly enjoyed our stay. Never got to the indoor pool, but looked at it and saw that it was kid friendly... More

(I was hoping for a partial refund or a coupon for a free night, but they couldn't do that). Brandon, the front desk person at check in was very friendly. Very... More
