I went online to choice hotels and checked the price. Since I am a state employee I get a discount. I don't like putting my information online, so after checking the prices I called directly to the hotel. I was told that I could not get that price and that if I wanted it for that I would have to book online. Should of been my first clue. I arrived about 1 1/2 hours early (before the 3pm check-in time) and was told there were no rooms available that I would have to wait until 3. I am a choice priveleges member and as such you are allowed to check in 1 hour early and out 1 hour late. I was told they didn't honor that. They did allow me to go to the computer room. From there I could see my room and saw that it had indeed been cleaned and was available. Guess they were afraid I would use 1 hour extra of electricity!!! Overall the room was clean...hotel nice. No pictures on the wall in the room. I attempted to use the vending machines...none of them would take my money. Since they had a store in the lobby I decided I would get a drink there...NOT. The prices were jacked up so much, makes you wonder why the machines would not take my money. I walked to the store just down from the hotel. The breakfast area was not clean and they didn't keep it stocked, think they were afraid someone might get a little too much. The grounds were not well kept...tall grass around the hotel...don't expect much of a view. I had a room on the bottom floor and you could hear everything above you...at times it sounded like an earthquake!! The hotel itself could be nice if not for the service!!!
I had read other reviews about other hotels and the train running behind them. All of the hotels are together and I don't think it will matter which one you stay in, you will hear it. It came through about 11:00 p.m.
