The last time I stayed in this hotel was when it was a Holiday Inn back in the early 1990's.
Oddly, it looked pretty much the same with the exception that the poolview rooms used to have sliding doors so you could sit out and watch the pool activity.
None of the rooms appear to have opening windows/doors to the pool area.
We were on the second floor but our view was out onto a wall of another enclosed area of the pool/restaurant section.
The room itself was clean, large, nice bathroom and comfortable bed so we were more than satisfied with the room itself.
We took a walk around the pool area and it seemed clean enough, just a couple stray towels on chairs from the daytime activity (kids) and the pool/hot tub appeared to be in good shape.
Unfortunately, I can't say the same about the hallways and common areas outside the lobby.
Many of the room doors looked battered and worn and the carpets in the hallways appeared uncleaned. There was also a lot of trash in the stairwells and external containers that needed to be cleaned up.
I know if was a busy long weekend and the hotel was at capacity so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt this time.
The hotel is in need of a "refreshing", but if you can mentally get past the hallways/stairs then you should be fine. They have a buffet style breakfast in the morning which we missed because we were lazy and slept in way too late so I can't comment on it.
I would imagine it is still a hit with families that have younger kids (like it was with us when our boys were young).
I wouldn't rule out staying here again if the price is right, but I will look around since we don't use the pool/spa and that's one of the big "selling" points of the hotel.
