All I can say is that the hotel seems to be poorly managed and it seems as if they are trying to do everything on the cheap. We are staying for a week, so we have some experience. First, they seem understaffed. It is frequently hard to find someone at the front desk and sometimes the phone rings for minutes. The breakfast does not meet normal HIE standards, The coffee is weak. They don't serve the normal complement of food. For instance, every other day there is sausage or bacon. Not here. Some days they just skip the meat. 3 out of five days they ran out of food during service. The TV did not work in one of our rooms and it took 3 days to fix. The hot tub has not worked since we arrived. Today they put an out of order sign on it. We knew that a few days ago! The wireless speed is slow, obviously inadequate service for the number of rooms. The pool is miniscule, which didn't bother us because we don't care, but I'm not really sure why they even put it in. I've never seen a hotel pool this small. For the prices being charged, they should do a much better job and if you've stayed at other HIE's, I think you will be disappointed.
