Beware! I placed my credit card to hold the room and had to cancel 24 hours before arrival. They took the money before I arrived. When I called to get my refund, they said it would take 72 hours. Unacceptable! Looking for the corporate office. I would never stay at this hotel.

“See the room before paying. They charged the "deluxe" price for two different rooms in our group. Race car track right behind hotel so you might want to check the events scheduled for the track.”
