Checked in on a Sunday night for a business conference through Wednesday. the front lobby was nicely updated and very welcoming. Hotel staff were courteous & friendly, but the whole check-in procedure was slow and tedious. After being told to drive to the rear of the property, had to walk through a security door entry to gain access to the property; it felt like walking into an apartment complex in a rough neighborhood. Took the elevator to the top floor (3rd) and entered my room. It was kind of a let down as I took my first few steps. First thing I notice were the popcorn ceilings. (Yikes!) I went to put something in the fridge so I could heat up my take-out dinner I picked up on the way and guess what; no mini fridge or microwave. (What year is this?) So what's next after driving for two hours? That's right, need to use the bathroom. Are you kidding me? I flushed the toilet & I thought I was camping. Peeked in on the tub/shower and noticed it is original from back in the day. I definitely wouldn't touch the in-room coffee maker. The A/C thermostat is original so give it your best turn of the knob to get it set to 74 degrees. Turned on the flat-screen tv & didn't even get HD channels. Seriously? Fortunately, after each day of the conference, their pool-side bar/lounge was a welcomed sight and a great way to relax at the day's end. If I'm in the area again, I'll probably stay somewhere else unless they do a complete upgrade on their rooms.
