After almost 12 hours (2 longer than planned) in a van with constant rain the entire drive we arrive after 4 AM. The front desk clerk was less than welcoming as our tired group of 12 came in. We immediately asked about getting a late checkout for 4 rooms and she said we would need to call the desk around 10. We were given 1 extra hour...A noon checkout. After having the "breakfast", worst continental I have ever had, I went to the desk and asked for just a half hour more which she said I could have but they would have to charge us a half days rate for anything after 12.
I realize it is not their fault we had a miserable drive in inclement weather but you can't give us a break. I was the only one up for the complimentary "breakfast" as everyone else was still sleeping past 10.
This place was probably very nice when it was built decades ago but it looks as if there have been no updates since. I will admit it was clean but with everything being so dated it just didn't feel fresh. The pictures with nicer furniture and TVs looked nothing like our room.
If you just need a place to lay your head it will do but I would not want to stay again.
