After the 6th night of being woken up every hour of the night, its safe to say we will NOT be returning to the Ponderosa Hotel. After complaining EVERY single night about the noise of the hotel there was no sympathy or apology from the staff and it continued every night from 2am-6am. No clean sheets, toilet paper or towels....
