First the good news - this hotel was clean. That's it...
Now the rest - The first room we were given had a running toilet. The second room we were given had a lousy A/C system. Unless I set it to run on the highest setting - it would shut off - so we froze over night rather than having it stuffy. The second issue in this room was the bathroom door. It wasn't hung correctly so it had a gap which you could see through with the door closed. I had to tell my family to stay on the other end of the room if the door was closed for privacy sake. The beds & pillows were hard as rocks making for a not so good sleeping experience as well - which is the main reason for the hotel.
In addition, the breakfast room is way to small for the size of the hotel. It was impossible to navigate the area, never mind find a seat. Traveling with a youngster meant balancing your way through the line, then back to the room to eat. Guess in this case it's true you get what you pay for. I tried this hotel because of the reviews - next time I'll just go to the Holiday Inn select which I stayed at last year and had a great experience at.
