The room smelled like an armpit. The breakfast was a "buffet".... $13.00 per person for a buffet consisting of five hot items. Asked the receptionist about a continental breakfast (we saw some cereal and bagels next to the hot food), and were told there was one. Then asked another receptionist and was told we were misinformed. We were told to try one of the diners nearby.
The first night we arrived at 10:02 and called to see if the pool was open. We were told it closed at 10pm. The second night we went to the pool at 9:20 to find it locked. Asked the receptionist and we were told that it closes every night at 9:00pm.
The room keys worked intermittently, and we found ourselves having to scan them several times to get the door to unlock.
The only good thing about the hotel was the maid. She was cleaning when we came back to our room around mid day of our second day, and asked us if we wanted specific things to be cleaned. She was very friendly and happy, and only did the things we asked her to.
We are planning trips back to the area in the future, and will definitely find a different hotel to stay in.
