Stayed at this hotel on a Friday evening in September. The hotel manager pleasantly checked us in at 9:30pm.Lobby is okay, but hotel appears very old. The guestroom we were assigned on the first floor was small. In fact the king bed took up most of the room. Shower was okay, definitey nothing special. The guestroom had a LCD TV mounted to the wall. It worked fine. The guestrooms have no closets built in, so the room had a "closet box" standing in the corner. Really did not find too much evidence of dirt or filth, everything just seemed "old". The indoor pool however is very small and the water appeared "cloudy". We didn't chance it. The hot breakfast was good for this type of peoprty (sausage patties and prefab egg omelet). Plenty of food and the dining area was very clean.
Odd thing was that there were signs everywhere in the lobby about rules (what you can't do). For example, no food or beverage was pemitted in the hotel lobby near the huge TV, but the dining side of the lobby was always roped off to keep people out except during breakfast.
In the middle of the night I went out to the lobby with my laptop to web surf (couldn't sleep). It was quiet for teh most part except for the ambulance that was lost. I later learned that a homeless person has walked into the lobby and asked for an ambuilance. He was sent outside and told to wait for the ambulance to arrive.
I have stayed at many hotels that were far far worse than this property, but in my opinion, the rate paid of $90/night was too high for the quality of this hotel.
