As other travelers have mentioned, road construction nearby makes this place tricky to get to and then there is more construction at the hotel. The pool and surrounding area are completely torn up. We were on the ground floor and our window looked directly into all the construction activity, so we had to keep the drapes closed or feel like monkeys in a zoo. I was concerned that we would be awakened at dawn by construction equipment, but they were considerate of guests.
There is an obvious attempt to modernize this place, but somehow all they have done seems to fall just a little short of the mark.
The ceilings are very low. My husband is 6'3" and anyone more than an inch or two taller would be hitting their head on the bathroom light. The bathroom was small, cold and didn't have heat or fan. The hair dryer is placed in such a manner that to reach the back of my head I had to turn my back to the mirror.They appeared to have recently "upgraded" the bathroom, but hadn't bothered to replace the door. On the plus side, the hair dryer had a nightlight which was very nice.
We tried the continental breakfast. It was ok, nothing special. But again, the noteworthy attempt to decorate the breakfast area just didn't quite work. The whole place gave the air of having gone to the lowest bidder.
The one bright spot is Stu at the front desk. He is an absolute delight and kept this from being a complete disappointment. He was charming and seemed to love his job. When my husband asked about getting our car washed he was most helpful and also made good suggestions for dinner establishments.
