The room had a fireplace, but even with the fireplace doors closed, there was a smoky smell all the time since it had never really been cleaned out from the previous time someone had used it. The place was being renovated, but none of the rooms available had been renovated yet. I think they were working on the conference center area first. All the people we met there were there because of a special deal through Groupon or Living Social, so I guess that was the only way they were getting any guests.Also, even though it advertised that all rooms had a balcony on the streamside, it was really like a roaring river.So loud that we had to turn up the tv to the max volume to hear it when we had the window open! Breakfast was in a small room with very limited choices: sweetened cereal, bagels, English muffins,biscuits/gravy, and fruit on the day that the "cook" was not there. We were all looking for something with a little protein, and finally got the "owner" or manager to make some scrambled eggs. Beds were clean, carpet was stained, and the tub had stains on it, or else it really needed a good scrubbing. The whole unit definitely needed renovation, but they should have a bigger crew working on it so that it would get finished faster, and have some "finished rooms" available when reservations are made.
