First let me say that I was there for a convention and received a special rate of $55. I was surprised how nice it was for that price. I heard a lot of complaints but I honestly didn't understand why. Our room was cleaned every day with fresh towels, sheets, and toiletries. My bed was very comfortable. There were a few things outdated like popcorn ceilings and a conference/eating area however this didn't bother me at all, some parts had already been renovated like the marble floors and high granite countertops in the bathrooms. This was my first convention and I was surprised at how accommodating the hotel was to our group! Some of us stayed up till 4 am painting in the conference rooms as well as some of the open common areas.( And no, they were not quiet!) I don't know too many places that would allow this for several nights in a row. I was upset about the two separate breakfasts at first, however when I learned that this was part of our negotiation on the room prices I couldn't very well blame the owner at all. On the first day he brought out hard boiled eggs after seeing my disappointment at all the starches and breads offered and kept his promise to continue offering them everyday. As the weekend progressed he did offer hot breakfast food (even omelets) on two occasions which he didn't have to do per the agreement. I liked that they offered a shuttle, however on the day of my departure it had been cancelled because the driver had to leave early, I was given no notice and had about 10 minutes to scramble for another ride from people I barely knew. (Thanks guys!) I blame this on one staff member who was not sympathetic to me at all that I could possibly miss my flight. I would definitely stay again, the pool was nice and stayed warm, the common areas were open, spacious, and decorated nicely. And all the staff I met seemed extremely nice, even had a few that were like old friends after talking to them everyday for 5 days...lol. We were also offered refrigerators for a small up charge and the owner purchased extra to accommodate us. I had a blast thanks to the staff and all the new friendships I made at the convention!
