The only reason for my little getaway was the pool and when I got there the pool was not available. Staff was very apologetic but nothing I could do couldn’t cancel because I did it on line.

The place was filthy and stinky. The bath tub does not drained. The main door required force to completely shut. There was no safe to lock up valuable items. Travelocity provided discount code "SAVENOW" for 20% off when check out and they did not honor it. We will never return to this place.

Hotel overall is dingy, long overdue for upgrade.

Pros: Location
Cons: A hotel which is sold out throughout the summer should be able to afford maintenance and improvements.
Staff was great, location is good. I've enjoyed staying there before. But the hallways are dark and dreary, rooms basic and showing signs of wear, even the plumbing seems tired.

Convenient, friendly and helpful staff.

Kind of worn down and in need of updates in the rooms. Furniture and bedding were older. Breakfast was not great either. Would only stay again if there weren't other choices.

other than internet the room was nice.

Internet connection was free, although it didn't work. Staff had no idea how to fix it. It worked for ipod and kindle, but not my laptop. Then after an hour it didn't work for any device in the room. On site resturant closed at 10am Tuesday morning.
