The hotel has a great exterior visual appeal and the lobby area is well designed and maintained. Front desk agent was a pleasure as well. This all led me to believe my stay would be very pleasant. Sadly I was disappointed. My room stunk like wet towels and cleaning chemicals The sofa was absolutely filthy, with stains and cigarette burns. The two TVs were a nice touch except the channels were very blurry and no premium cable options (could at least do HD). Worst part of the stay was the lack of sound proofing in the rooms. I knew when my neighbors entered the room, took showers, and used their restroom. Could even hear their TV at times. Breakfast was very well done with a live station for eggs, bacon, hash browns, and the pool looked clean. WiFi was hit or miss most of the time.
With two other lodging options right next door, I may consider them the next time I'm staying in this area.
