On this trip we were there to use a coupon we received in the mail for a free room, having spent a lot of money there before I guess. We were only staying for one night as we were just passing through on our way home from Minneapolis so we did not upgrade the room when asked. Boy were we sorry we didn't! The room turned out to be in basement-type area with very loud door slamming all around us. At around 2 in the morning our neighbor came home turned on his t.v. and coughed for at least an hour which we could hear because of adjoining doors.
To be fair we were here in a jacuzzi suite the last trip which was pretty nice so of course the free room would be a let-down. However even in the jacuzzi suite I had a problem where the bathroom tiles were so slippery I had a very bad fall and cut my leg which ruined the trip.
In regards to food, we noticed the quality of the buffet has gone downhill over the last couple of years, seems to be chock full of carbohydrates (potatoes, rice, noodles, stuffing) and not a whole lot else. In general the whole establishment seems ready for a refurb so won't be back again until we hear it has improved.
