The carpet was so sticky you couldn't take off your shoes, the tub bottom was totally down to the fiberglass lining, the bathroom floor was broken as was the tile. The televisions are the old big box type, no remote, only got one channel of cartoons and the screen was a pinky-purple color. The lights between the beds didn't work...

It was clean. It was close to what we were doing. They do have a free breakfast before 9am. It has the usual food on it. We will be staying there again. Price is right. They are all on the ground floor and an easy outside walk to the front desk.

Rooms are spacious. Bathroom is on the small side though. Very quiet clean grounds. Fred is amazing at the front desk. Anything you need he'll try to accommodate and get done quickly. I stayed in a pet friendly room so the finishes are not as nice as a regular room but still very comfortable.
