My husband and I stayed two nights, including one night with our young children. The rooms are nice but nothing spectacular. I enjoyed the Keurig coffee maker. The shower only (no tub) was a little inconvenient for the kids, but we knew that would be the situation. The beds were pretty soft and we slept well. The air conditioner did not seem to work extremely well in the 100F weather. We set it on 63 and it never got cool in our room. One minor complaint was that the blackout shades didn't cover the entire window, so the sun was streaming in, directly into my eyes, at 6:30 am.
We did not try the restaurant or room service because hotel food generally disappoints and we would rather just eat somewhere else.
One reason we brought our kids to the Overton was for the pool. It was 100 degrees daily, but the pool was FREEZING. Our kids couldn't even stand it! The pool is only in the sun in the morning and is shaded by the hotel in the afternoon, so never warms up. My husband took the kids in the hot tub, but the water was murky and green so I didn't venture in. Disgusting!
Overall, we enjoyed our stay. We did get a good deal by booking at an online travel site. I wouldn't pay $150+ for this hotel.
