Third year staying at the Clarion or Universal Best Western as it is know these days. Love the location, staff, basic but comfortable rooms.
Only question I have is where did that $2 Million they spent on a refurb go? They have new TVs and Vanity units in the room but looks like thats about it. I expected more to be honest but still enjoyed my stay and would return.
Made more use of the pool area this year which was nice. One thing that is a bit annoying is only one PC for internet and its always being hogged by teenagers charging their IPods. They should introduce a token system where guests only have 30 minutes each and disabling the usb ports so people dont hog the PC.
I also went to the Gym a few times and was always the only one in there. Good facility but a few free weights would make it much better. Nice and air conditioned though making it comfortable for a work out.
