I got a great rate with my Entertainment card and the place was fine for our overnight stay. Checking in took a while but the woman who helped me was courteous. Parking attendants were helpful and all the maintenance and house keeping staff we ran into was very friendly. The room was very clean and the hotel was well maintained. i was disappointed that everything in the lobby was closed at night, including the main hotel entrance. It was a little bit of a pain. Also, was annoyed that I wasn't allowed to drink a beer by the pool. I get that glass or an open container might be pushing it but I poured it in a plastic cup and wanted to enjoy a beverage in the pool before dinner and was told I couldn't. There was a sign posted and it was the policy so i respected it but I like a pool with a bar area or if not at least let me drink a beer. Pool was nice thou, even though I didnt stay in long. AC didn't keep the room cool enough for my liking and I was hot while I was sleeping. Then it froze up and didnt work at all for a while. Bathroom was smallish. Maybe this stuff will be addressed as part of the remodel. Location was good. Breakfast bar was awesome for the price, FREE! Nice selection and the attendants did a great job keeping it well stocked. I could go for another cinnamon roll now! Overall, if I could get a good rate and I was returning to the area I would stay here again.
