Reviewed September 8, 2013

We stayed here for a convention. The staff was EXCELLENT. Housekeepers were great.

The hotel is an old Holiday Inn that was THE place to stay years ago. Now, it is threadbare in areas and rooms are badly in need of updates. Sleep quality is fine though the old air conditioners are noisy. Hallways are dark.

Poolside rooms are nice, but pool noise can run until late in the evening. Since this is a place where weekend baseball teams (youth and adult) stay, you can expect noise.

Parking is good, but keep your car locked due to prowlers.

The major downfall is the lack of a restaurant. They do have a free breakfast, but that's it. They used to have a wonderful restaurant and bar, but now just a sall bar. Oddly, they cater WONDERFUL buffet dinners - go figure. Many in our group ended up across the street at the new Holiday Inn for various meals. Otherwise, you are limited to 7-11 across the street, Dairy Queen or a nearby Bob's Burgers and Brew.

I rated this place higher SOLELY because of staff.

Stayed July 2013, traveled on business
