Just a place to rest your head

The hotel was located right on one of the trolley stops, so that was very convenvient, but it was nothing special, they did not clean the bathroom floor apparently, through-out our stay.

Horrible- Do not book!

Hotel was bad. Television and internet did not work. Room was very, very small. Room was expensive. If it had been cheap, it would have been worth what was paid. Covered walkways had cracks and leaked water on you as you walked.We called TWO 800 numbers the hotel had on business cards and front desk clerk said to use to complain and ask for refund... both were disconnected. Called front desk and started to explain situation and was cut off and told they would call back. Front desk attendant lied and said she couldn't reach a manager. By this point we had already packed our stuff back up to leave. Spoke with HoJo corporation and then property manager. [...] Only thing the hotel did good was agree to our refund. At least we only wasted a few hours rather than have our 10 year anniversary and wedding vow renewals be ruined.Gave one star because it wouldn't let me give NONE.

Below ordinary.

Disappointing for a resort town. Breakfast was cold cereal and toast. No fruit, no yoghurt.

Not the worst

The hotel was definately nothing special, but with a 1 year old, it was safe without any hazards. The beds were comfortable and was easily pushed against the wall for the baby. Pool was clean and great location. The big tree was nice to wake up to outside. Room was clean but the bathtub had hair. :/

Disappointing bargain

The location to the main attractions was from walking distance. The hotel front looks really good but when you enter the room the ceiling was pealing from humidity. The bathroom was not inviting to taking a shower. The carpet and bed covers were new but everything else was old. Musty smell in the room. Was quiet for sleep. Plenty of parking. the beds were clean. The tour trains stop on the property & you can buy the tickets at the office.

Shop around and make sure you see the pictures of the rooms and read reviews. It is always helpful to see what others had to say about the property.

Cheap and convenient.

The hotel is OLD, but very convenient location for walking. Bed and pillows were comfortable but the bathroom was old, dirty, horrible shower, occasional hot water, clogged drains.
