At check in there was only 1 attendent on Friday evening and the wait to just check in was nearly a 1/2 hour. The clerk was pleasant and apologized for the wait. The mattress was wonderful. Problems: could not get the cold water shower handle to turn down or off completely and the tv would come on the turn off immediately. We reported the water issue but not the tv.

This property has seen better days, bad remolding job, the ac units are old and barley work, In fact we had to move out of a room because the ac couldn't keep the room cool. one of the ac leaked over the main door out back, you got drops of water on you if you used the back door. the staff was great. very nice.
