I admit that when Price Line had a deal going with this hotel chain I thought I got a great deal. The hotel looks nice on the outside, though the inside lobby area is small and it doesn't look like a 3 star hotel. I went to my room and it was a smaller room than any 3 star I'd been in, the same with the bathroom. I gave it my white glove test and it didn't pass. There was dust in quite a few places....maybe I'm weird but when I find this stuff and mold growing in the tile in the bathroom I always wonder if the toilet seat has been sanitized. The pool was near the lobby though I don't think there was room for another person in there. Kids were running around everywhere though by 10 it was nice and quiet.
I talked to the staff that was on duty all 3 shifts and all of them were indifferent and definitely not people persons. There was a restaurant within a block and some drive throughs fairly close but were not to any of my liking. I always like to stay at a place where a restaurant is in the place or a short walk away.
With all said and done it didn't matter that I got a great deal, but I've stayed at MOST 2 Star motels that are nicer, larger rooms, and staff's that are people persons. When the staff isn't nice it just puts a sour note on the whole deal. "It's not even worth half the price"
