We checked into this hotel late at night with 3 very sleepy small children. The front desk staff was friendly and checked us in fairly quickly. The elevators were located down the main hall (strange set up). We walked into the elevator and was engulfed in HOT air - no air conditioning. Granted it had been 107 during the day but no air in the elevator? Then when attempting to open our room door - of course our key didn't work. I had to go back to the front desk and start all over again. Once in the room we were shocked on how small it was. When the couch was pulled out for the kids there was barely enough room to squeeze by to get to the bathroom. I called down for a blanket for the pullout and they were apparently out of blankets. As it turned out the room was hot and I don't think cooled down until the next morning so blankets weren't really needed anyway. Breakfast was open at 5AM which was great as we had an event we had to be at by 6:30AM and wanted kids to eat before we left. For the money we paid, this was not a good experience. I would not recommend this for a family stop.
