I resisted making a reservation here because of the many average-to-negative reviews over the past year but, for a number of reasons, I had few options. I was pleasantly surprised. I think management has worked hard to address some of the problems. The staff was extremely nice and accommodating, and they made it a good place to stay. The rooms are OK--they show some wear-and-tear and need some updating. Try to get a reduced rate via Expedia or some other website; otherwise, the rooms are expensive for what your get. Reserve a room with a pool view (rooms ending in odd numbers); otherwise you look out over the parking lot.
