Not The Same as it used to be

I had stayed here before so let me tell you what has changed. THE GOOD - If you want a cheap stay then this is the place. There were 6 of us in for Spring training so we needed a place to sleep and shower. THE BAD - New Ownership, Pool no longer heated, Rooms in need of a make over, Staff no helpful due to not speaking good English.

Low cost resort

This hotel was a resort at one time. It is still very nice but requires upkeep. It was still a value for the low cost. It is close to the Cubs field, across from a Starbucks, offers a free breakfast, and is in a nice neighborhood close enough to a grocery store. However, there is not a microwave in the room.

Dobson Road

We've been to this hotel before. They have improved on the internet. The rooms are clean but not fancy. They did not heat the pool which was a disappointment . They have downsized their breakfast to mostly cold cereal, scrambled eggs, and sausage links. We went to the bar /restaurant all they had was Mexican food and they have cut the sandwiches out at lunch. The air conditioning in our room did not work very well. The price is good but I am not sure I would. Stay here again.

A disappointment

First the positives, the people were friendly and helpful and the bed comfortable. That wasn't enough to make it worth the price and the negatives. While required to say to what kind of traveler I'd recommend this hotel, the truth is I can't. It was represented as being "new" or at least "newly renovated" (depending on the source). It's at least 25 years old, according to locals, and if it's been renovated in the last 5 years, it doesn't show. The furniture is dinged up, the towels are grey, the decor is ugly and mismatched (browns and oranges in the carpet and furniture with a muted aqua color for the curtains with photos of branding irons and brands burned into things by the bed). They did put in a curved shower rod, but installed it incorrectly. The widest part of the curve lined up with the edge of the tub with the result being even less room in the shower instead of more. With all the lights on and the curtains open, it was still quite dark. With it being a "down and out" hotel rather than one with secured entrances to the hotel, I didn't feel particularly safe, either. I was thankful the site I went through to make the non-refundable reservation went to bat for me in getting me out of the last two nights there.
