Neglected Dump

Hotel changed ownership a few years ago. They put a few bucks into the lobby, but neglected the rest. Rooms are late 80's with the same carpet. Computers in the lobby don't work (& haven't worked in over 6 months.) Fitness room has 7 -15 year old machines, only 3 work. TV in fitness room doen't work... no towels. Hotel food is terrible, no gift shop. But there's a nice pool & free parking!

Don't Do It.

This was my third stay at this location over the years, unfortunately it has gone downhill... way downhill since my first stay. Upon check in the attendent at the counter wanted to double charge me because I used a third party to book the room. The manager finally stopped her but she was not happy about it. The room was not filthy but certinaly not clean. Stains on the curtians that were comming off the rod. Razzor cap from the previous guest on the bathroom counter. About midnight there was what sounded like a huge party was happening outside our door I called the front desk who was completly annoyed that I called and said he would send security. He wanted to know were it was comming from since I was 100' from the front desk I thought he would know. After about 20 min. it seemed to settle down, About an hour later it started up again with cars playing loud rude music yelling and carring on. Again I callled the annoyed front desk and he send security out again. The next morning we went down for breakfast the waitress could hardly be troubled to seat us she was visiting with a loud obnixious gentelman. The buffet was cold danish was hard. She managed to bring our bill from what I thought was a complimentary breakfast for $20. She never came back so I could ask that was the last straw. I went to the front desk Finaly got a civilized person,I explained the horrible buffet she did give a voucher for a free breakfast which was good "we didn't eat" ! Never again! Too bad it is in a great location.

Just a room

The room was ok. There was a blood stain on the towel, and the bed comforter. Was grossed out, but aside from that, the room was clean. There was a coffee maker in the room, which we didn't use. The pool was being resurfaced, so we didn't get a chance to swim either. All in all, it was ok...but I wouldn't pay $90/night for it again. For that, I would stay at the Hilton across the street.
