Just like last time service at the restaurant was poor and the meals were totally burnt....should have known again since no one else was there. Pool below average and hot tub broken down. Breakfast was very poor especially for...

Stayed here because this hotel was on wrestling tournament selected hotels. I'd estimate that at least 15+ cars in the parking garage had windows smashed in, electronics stolen, everything thrown around. Rooms were OK - old, well worn. Same for the bath. Otherwise OK.
