Originally, my family of 5 had planned to stay in a 2 room suite for 3 nights. By the second night, we were more than ready to cut our losses and get out. The hotel is terribly outdated but to their credit, they are trying to remodel. The bad news is that they are doing it on the same floors where they are putting their guests. The stench of the carpet glue was horrible and to go anywhere on our floor, we had to walk over and around the carpet guys and their equipment.
We had no hot water in our room and neither the coffee maker nor hair dryer worked. The bathroom was dirty and there were only about 6 sheets of TP and a couple tissues when we checked in. The holidome was very nice and a lot of fun till a couple of "escorts" and their clients made a scene in the swimming pool. Trying to talk to anyone at the front desk, even at 10:30 pm, required a 15 minute wait and our complaints were met with apathy.
This hotel has a lot of potential and could be very nice, but it has a long way to go. We might try it again in a few years, after the dust has settled.
