One of the reasons we had selected this hotel was for the promised amenities, including, specifically, the exercise room. Much to our dismay, the room was unbearably hot, with no air conditioning. When we queried the front desk, we were told, sorry, they don't have the ability to turn on the ac in there (there were 2 large vents in the ceiling), that the owner controls the ac for the public areas & doesn't have it turned on in there & they don't have a key to change it, they suggested we open the window, which was ridiculous, it was already opened & likely part of the reason for the unbearable heat/humidity in there, as it was near 100 degrees outside with about that amount of humidity! So we propped open the one door to the hallway, which at least had some amount of ac (it was set to 78 on the thermostat in the hall in the locked box) & proceeded to try to utilize the equipment. The recumbent bike I tried, as well as the treadmill my husband tried, neither worked properly & the heat was unbearable; we had no choice but to retreat to our room, put on our swimsuits & try to get some exercise in the pool. Indoor pool was about 90 degrees, warmer than bathwater, again, pretty unpleasant to try to utilize for exercise. Husband wanted to use the sauna, it was off, so we turned it on when we got in the pool, 25 minutes later, still not heated enough to use...the pool room was hotter & steamier from the overheated pool & open windows. All in all very dissatisfactory for features that were supposed to be included & usable for the not inexpensive price we paid to stay at this hotel. The room was okay, bed reasonably comfortable, room fairly clean, less than ideal towels, stained washcloth.
As stated in the title, just okay, not great, certainly not worth the price we paid, no plans to stay here again on any future road trips unless there is a change in management with improvements to making all of the facilities functional.
