This is not a bad hotel. It just needs some significant improvements to rate better. First of all, I stayed in 2 different rooms and both were in need of some deep cleaning. The lamps were incredibly dusty. The glass shelves in the bathroom were grimy around the edges. One of the rooms had a nasty smear all over the bathroom mirror. The floor edges back under the bathroom sink looked like they had not seen a good scrub in a couple of months.
As for noise, ask for the top floor. Apparently there is no insulation between your room and the room above you and you can hear every foot step - top floor room will take care of that. next, ask for an air unit that does NOT have the thermostat control. The manual ones let you set the unit for constant "Fan On" which helps with the ON and OFF noise of the unit as it blows cool or hot air. Our first room had the thermostat with no "Fan On" option and it was very disturbing throughout the night as it kicked on and off. We even had our own sound machine with us, but it didn't help.
On the plus side, the staff is friendly and the indoor pool was nice. Don't expect anything special for breakfast - it was OK. Cinnamon rolls were warm and gooey (very good), but too fattening to eat everyday.
