You have to sign up for shuttle service but not until you arrive. The shuttle service is limited and stopped early on Friday. Rooms are not great and updates are needed all around. Our door had a loose safety bar. The breakfast is very basic and nothing to get excited about. We could hear traffic all day and especially early...

Friendly and prompt free shuttle service, too....

Front Staff was friendly and helpful with questions regarding places to dine and direction/s. Reservation and parking areas appeared clean and organized (so was area for breakfast dining). Hotel centrally located. The goodness went south from there. The room was dingy-dark & uninviting, even with lights on and curtain partially opened. Furniture and Carpet didn't appear to be in the...
