“Mold and poor maintained facility”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

Rooms were full of water condinsation from indoor pool and mold was in rooms. Horrible condition. Hotel needs to be repaired so water from indoor water park does not effect rooms.

We booked via Expedia for supposedly better rates. The hotel quoted rates were high and Expedia was cheaper. However, when we checked out and got the bill the hotel rate for Sat & Sun night was only 126.00 instead of the Expedia 162.00 rate. So they dont seem to know what they are doing in quoting prices for people phoning to reserve rooms. We were put in a room across from a banquet room which held a wedding obviously cause we booked via Expedia for a cheap room..... The noise was unbelievable till 1 am before they cleared out. The carpets are filthy so keep your shoes on. The curtains were ripped. I picked up the phone receiver to make a call to front desk for 2 more towels and something had clearly been spilled on the phone cradle and was never cleaned. Gross. Bathroom very outdated and yellowed with spray painted areas where they sprayed the ceiling tiles. Continental breakfast was good, bed was sleepable but very high so unless your 6' you have trouble getting in and out of the bed. Poor air and smelly room so kept the air conditioner on which also helped dullen the noise from the wedding. A lot of children in the hot tub which they are not supposed to be in. You can smell chlorine at front check in so you know it is not up to par. Fridge was dirty from something spilled in it quite a while ago. They allow pets in the rooms so by time we left we were both wheezing so I am thinking the cleaning is not up to par at all. The hallways stink of cigarette smoke so there is no fresh air intakes to take that away. The couch in room is so worn out you sink almost to the floor and need help to get out. Kept our luggage on it instead and sat on the coffee table.

Room Tip: Don't bother booking here.

This location is nice for the price the pool has more of a family feel and less of a generic pool. could use some updates as the building is older.. but it is a start if you are coming with a family.
