The people who work here are very nice and prompt. But the food, while included in the room rate, left a lot to be desired.
When I checked-in, it was happy hour, so I strolled over to see what the offerings were. I saw this tray of very black "something" and stepped closer to make it out and it was about 50 burger patties that were blackened. As in really, really burnt. I'd never seen anything like it before.
But the majority of the clientle, who appear to be oil rig workers, devoured the burgers and what appeared to be undercooked bratwursts. And for drinkers, of which there were many, free beer is provided.
The offshoot of that is there were several guys out by the pool who were making many roundtrips to the bar, and then talking loudly past 11pm. So when checking in be sure to ask for a room that's not near, or overlooking the pool area.
The cookies were good however. Hard to go wrong with that. But I would have thought the same for cooking hamburgers.
Breakfast was cold scrambled eggs (at least they were dry and not wet/runny). The french toast was cold. But the bacon was good. Do not drink the "orange juice." It was BAD. The worse I've probably ever had in a restaurant. It had an orange tinge to it and that's the closest it came to orange juice. Very watered down and undrinkable.
Room was clean, but the desk chair was broken (room 224). You'd lift it up using the lever on the right side of the chair, and it would slowly sink to the ground.
Walls were thin too, so if you have noisy neighbors it's going to be a long night.
While it's only about 5 minutes from the airport, you'd be better off at the Embassy Suites.
