We stayed here for a soccer tournament that was held on the fields directly behind the hotel. It was not our first choice of where to stay but you can't beat the convenience of walking to the games and having your room close by. This is of course an older style hotel (probably a Holiday Inn at its inception). A semi "Holidome" if there is such a thing. Most rooms faced outside. There were very few rooms that faced an interior setting. We were able to check in early without any problems. The room was clean. It was your standard "70's Holiday Inn Motel" set up. Floor A/C, bed, tv, etc. To the rear of the room was the sink area which opened into the room and the room with toilet and tub off to the side. King-size bed was comfy.
Don't waste your money on a roll-away bed. It was old, uncomfortable and not worth the $10 it will cost you. Sleeping bags on the floor would be better.
They advertised free wi-fi internet, but I could never connect to the internet.
Indoor pool and hot tub great for the girls to relax after games. But, be warned...the bar in this hotel is closed. Per the gal at the front desk. they only open it for special occasions and when the hotel is at a certain occupancy level. She will send you across the street to Don's seafood for the bar. Also the restaurant is closed and only serves the free breakfast in the morning. The breakfast wasn't bad. Was a lot more than expected.
In summary, it was nothing fancy, but it was clean. Would recommend if you are playing on the soccer fields nearby, otherwise, I think you can find better accommodations elsewhere.
