I originally reviewed this hotel in 2010 and this year we stayed there again. There are a couple things to know about this hotel, yes it is dated, and yes the pictures were either taken by a very good photographer, or they are from when the hotel opened!! The rooms don't look like the photos. Keep in mind this is not a 5 star hotel, and my rate was $57/night! Can't beat it!! I requested a room with a fridge and microwave and got a room on the 4th floor. The room was fine. I pulled back the sheets to investigate the mattress and it looked new. I checked it for cleanliness and it was again fine. The pool was great and heated, so my son was happy! I did not expect the miracles, and was thrilled with the price! I would suggest if you get a room that you are unhappy with then ask the desk to make a switch. There are better rooms, and as the other reviewers have noted, the front desk staff was very friendly and helpful! And for the record, I carry Lysol wipes to wipe out the bathroom because I don't think they ever really clean hotel bathrooms!! Just don't expect the Taj Mahal, and for $57/night you can't beat it!
