I previously gave this hotel a good review when we visited a year ago. This time, however, things could not have been more different. The main reason we stay at this hotel is the nice pool area and hot tub. We showed up this year only to discover that the entire area was closed and under construction. No warning at all and no discount offered. There was no outdoor space available at all. Usually, we get a nice room with a balcony. The rooms are rather worn and dated, and the hall carpet is awful, but we have ignored this in the past. This time, they had sold out the hotel to some sort of teenage rowing convention, so they dumped us--decades-long guests--into the worst rooms in the house. They tried to stick us into an airless room that opened onto a dark internal corridor traveled by workmen. The sliding glass door onto this dark corridor did not even lock! When I went and refused to take this room, they found one that was marginally better, at least it had light and the door wasn't broken. The entire hotel was overrun with teenagers all weekend. To their credit, they weren't horribly rowdy, but they were teenagers, which means they were sitting in the hallways talking and laughing all hours of the night, making noise. We could not sleep. When I complained to the front desk, they just shrugged. Obviously, they really didn't care. My friend booked us these rooms and he's a regular at the hotel, so I didn't feel like I could make a stink, but otherwise I really would have. And I certainly won't stay there again.
