DONT IGNORE all the reviews about the noise like I did at this place. I have stayed in a LOT of hotels, and NEVER been in a place that is as loud as this hotel. The road is aptly named "Speedway". Three lanes of cars moving in both directions traveling at high speeds and accelerating from a stop light ALL NIGHT LONG. It was terrible. Got almost no sleep and not a single USB in the entire facility! Cable/wifi down for part of the stay. Still no maid service (too convenient for hotels to blame covid and save themselves $ and reduce staff.) Dont forget the additional $15/day on top of what you think you will be paying. Go somewhere else and save yourself some pain.

This is my 2nd stay and I booked this months ago but still ended up with a street facing room rather than inside pool facing like the first time. It was loud and a different experience. Also, a 10am check out time is harsh and they will only extend it to 11am when asked. All said, the property is great in general, just a couple of things that could make it better.

They had outdoor grills. The bath tub would not drain faster than the shower. The shower head had just enough flow call it a shower. The shower is built for someone less than 5' 9" . Be prepared to bend over to wash your hair. The paint in the bathroom is peeling. They call this a resort so they can charge a resort fee of 14.95/day. It's not any better than a Marriott Courtyard. At least at a Marriott Courtyard you get breakfast. The hot tub seating iks built for people 6' or better.

Great size of room for the price!

We really enjoyed staying here. The hotel rooms were very large and comfortable. We enjoyed being able to have a full fridge and eating area in our room. Everything was great!

Hotel and staff were outstanding!

Pros: Friendly staff, hotel decor and spacious, clean room.
Cons: I saw no need for improvement. I was impressed by the staff and hotel in general.
Location: Location is safe, although it is on busy Speedway Blvd. Plenty of dining and shopping nearby.
Starting with the hotel front desk agent, the experience checking in was great. We arrived a little early and he was able to get us into a room before the official check in time. His demeanor was as good as any I've experienced while checking in to a hotel. The hotel decor and cleanliness were excellent and the pleasant aroma in the lobby was a plus. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable.
