We stayed there for a dog show weekend. The first thing that happened was that on check-in there was a sign posted about pet fees. First pet free, then $20 per pet after that. Well, right off the bat I was pissed. There was NOTHING on the website about a pet fee, RR states pets stay free. Anyway, after my comment about the website, check in person asked if we were in town for the dog show and since we were, they were waiving the pet fee - so after that there was nothing to complain about, and I had 5 dogs.
Other than that, everything was great. the room was big w/ 2 queens. The breakfast was fine (waffles, sausage, sausage biscuits, coffee, milk, juice, donuts, grits, oatmeal. We opted to eat the breakfast to save some money. The staff in the breakfast area was extremely nice and grateful that we were staying and invited us to stay again. I know they have to say that to everyone but its nice to hear.
I left my key card at the show site and the staff was nice about giving me another key. Although I felt they should have asked for ID because all I did was tell them a room number.
Overall, great place to stay, clean. We did not use the indoor pool but I did walk down the hall on 1st floor and there was really an overwhelming smell of chlorine, so I wondered if inside the pool room if the chlorine was even worse. I would not recommend a room on the 1st floor on the pool side. Also, maybe next time, I'll get a room on the back side...maybe that will cut out some of the interstate noise.
