I met some family members at the hotel late on a Friday. They had booked it on Priceline as an Express Deal (A discount on the room rate at an anonymous hotel until you pay). We looked at it online and it didn't look too bad...after all it was rated 3 stars. The hotel was easy to find and staff were pleasant and helpful. Our room smelled strongly of air freshener, as if the previous guest had been smoking and the room was sprayed to mask the smell. The bathroom mirror had toothpaste splatter on it, the toilet took forever to drain, and the shower drain didn't stay up on it's own so we had to stuff a washcloth in it. There was no city directory or hotel directory in the room for that matter. The coffee packets in the room were opened when we went to make coffee in the morning, as if they had been opened by the previous guest and not thrown away. The only positive is that there were a microwave and refrigerator in the room and the beds were comfortable. The pool was also nice and it was quiet, but the hot tub water appeared green. If you are just looking for a bed to sleep in and don't plan on using any amenities (including the shower) then this place would be good...if you are looking for a clean place to stay, with working facilities then try looking somewhere else.
