What I want in a hotel stay is a good night's sleep with a decent experience overall. I got a good night's sleep here and the service was adequate. But, OMG, the decor of the place. I was waiting for Jan or Bobby Brady from the Brady Bunch to walk through the door. The decor shouts 'early 70s' with the...

This is a layover hotel as we head to the airport in the AM. Where to start the check in was uneventful, the front desk pushed us in and out very quickly, no mention of breakfast or anything, as if she was excited to get a customer and rushed us off before we changed our mind. We pulled our luggage...

Great Hotel for families. The kids were on the water slide for hours. The positive there were not any life guards so you can do what you want. The negative, the hot tub was a swimming pool for little kids and there was 10-20 kids in a 8 man hot tub splashing and swimming even though you had to be...

I was there with family for a basketball tournament. We were able to get rooms next to each other which we appreciated. The staff was friendly and helpful. My room was a typical hotel room and fine for me. Everything was very clean. The halls were quiet at night. I had breakfast there twice and the food was great. My...

This was a work trip and paid for by work. The room was relatively clean (a few stains on the carpet) and the grout in the shower was a little dingy, but overall pretty clean. The bed was ok, but the heat in the room was very loud and when it would kick in in the middle of the night,...

The internet was constantly in and out. If it did work it was buffering and I couldn't get any work done. A co-worker didn't get any bath towels and when she asked for some they told her "No" because they were short on towels. The gym consists of two old treadmills and an ancient elliptical machine. The water fountain gives...
