NO HOT BREAKFAST! A hot breakfast was advertised, but the hotel only offers a hot breakfast when there is a minimum number of guests and apparently when we stayed there they didn't have enough guests. There wasnt even a waffle maker for us to use. The game room looked appealing, but the air hockey table was broken so it wasnt fun to play and the Foosball handles were loose so that was also difficult to play. In the pool area the hot tub was nice and hot, very hot, but the jets only worked on one side. That ended up being ok since, as I mentioned earlier, there werent many guests so we had the pool area to ourselves. Also, the basketball hoop was bent so while you could still shoot on it, it wasn't in ideal condition and should be replaced. All-in-all, had there been a hit breakfast and the game room games were in working condition, I'd give this hotel 5 stars. However, since thise were the three main reason why I booked this hotel I'm giving this hotel a lower rating.

Staff was great for the check in ! Later they were smoking in front of the door which is a dissatisfyer. Also, there was no soap in the bathroom of our hotel. With covid numbers on the rise, hand washing with soap is important.

Overall a nice, clean hotel. Staff was friendly. Mis-communication on breakfast consist was an issue and breakfast was poor. Room was quiet but beds/bedding were uncomfortable.

Very expansive rooms, great shower, nice Saturday breakfast options, all for a wonderful price! We did not use the pool as we had other plans. Wifi is unprotected and the front door window was broken and boarded but don't judge a book by it's cover.
