The staff was friendly and helpful at check-in. My room's bathroom had a lot of hair from someone. I mentioned it at check-out and they didn't look phased and barely apologized. Now I have a random additional charge to my credit card. Overall was better when it was a Ramada.

The staff was extremely friendly and if they did not know the answer to a question they would call us with the answer. The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The breakfast had a good selection of items including fresh fruit and yogurt.

Very clean lobby, rec area, and rooms; comfortable pool temperature; water slide with huge hot tub, comfortable beds and pillows; very hospitable and efficient staff; delicious continental breakfast with omelets, sausage, waffles, fruit, and yogurt! Our family (ages 5 months to 70 years) had a wonderful, relaxing time!

Paid over $175/night. Kids loved the pool but the hot tub was overcrowded and never was able to use it. There were about 20 people in it and blocking stairs and access. Rooms advertised as poolside, but you had to go down a hall to get to pool. Bathrooms lacked soap dishes and the showers were a bit outdated. No... More

It's possible we just had bad luck, but the towels were stained, the toilet went crazy making some horrible, loud howl for 15 minutes in the middle of the night, and the breakfast area wasn't stocked. The garbage cans were so full they were spilling on the floor. The kids had fun at the pool, and it was one night... More

Hotel staff were amazing! Hotel needs updating especially bathrooms and pool grout (visible mildew and mold). Wifi didn't work for several days we were there. Management and policies imposed on staff are concerning. We won't be returning because of corporate greed...they need to treat their employees better and update the hotel.
