We arrived prior to check-in and were told that there were no rooms available at the moment and to come back in a few hours. I wasn't thrilled with the fact that the woman who "helped" us didn't make much eye contact with me and didn't even offer to let us leave our bags at the hotel.
When we checked in later we were greeted by a nice gentlemen who presented us with our room keys, a $10 coupon for the hotel restaurant, and whoopie pies from Wicked Whoopies, which were absolutely amazing. Additionally, there was a popcorn machine in the lobby, which we took advantage of. We were assigned a room in the back of the property.
The property could definitely use some updating. I wish I could say it was clean and comfortable, but it wasn't clean and because it wasn't clean, I couldn't exactly get comfortable, especially in our room. The bathroom had several strands of hair near the sink when we arrived, which REALLY turned me off.
We passed on the $10 restaurant coupon and went across the street to CHIPOTLE for dinner, instead.
I can't say I recommend this place...I definitely would never go back.
