We stayed here for 5 nights in March 2012. We selected this location because it was a good value for us and our parents to share a suite, also hoping to eat some meals in. The price was very good and the rooms were clean, but those are about the only positive things I can say.
The entire place was in disrepair. In our room, one of two stove eyes did not work, the dishwasher did not work, several light bulbs were missing, there were only enough utensils for 3 people (for a suite designed for 6), there was no skillet, the handicapped-accessible automatic door was broken, one hair dryer was broken, and one clock radio did not work. We enjoy using exercise facilities, but their single weight machine had broken cables, rendering half the machine non-functional. The seats were broken and non-adjustable for the stationary bikes (2). The treadmill needed waxing, the clock was stopped, the water cooler was empty (all week), there was no TV remote, and the step machine had a broken heart rate monitor. It appeared that they had purchased less-expensive equipment designed for home/family use rather than facility equipment. In the general hotel, one of two elevators was broken, the pool was "temporarily" shut down (all week) and contained leaves and green silt. the whirlpool/spa was out of order and the landscaping around the pool contained dead trees and was overgrown with weekds. The ice machine on our floor made no ice. Even the lobby fountain was dry. The breakfast was pretty pitiful - dry toast, store-bought danishes, and coffee. Be forewarned that housekeeping service is only one day per week - they don't take out your trash and have little in the way of extra linens or towels if you need them.
The desk was manned by one person, and for a few hours a day there were 2 housekeepers around, but no other staff otherwise. I felt that the staff wanted to be helpful, but that the owners didn't give them many resources to respond to guests. You had the sense that the place was about to go out of business at any minute.
If you need a CHEAP place for a large family or group, this may do, but be ready for a third-rate experience.
