My son was graduating from SAU in Magnolia, which was reason for trip. I had gastrointestinal flu upon arriving at hotel and was ill most of the night. After waking in the AM I wanted to clean up, but there was NO water. I had to jump in the pool just to feel alive. The hotel is under construction with a remodel. No lobby and most of first floor was taped off. The exercise room was closed. Construction workers were spraying a mortar mix on outside of hotel that got all over our vehicle. They closed the pool the first afternoon we were there. I believe we should have been told the hotel was being remodeled and been given option to stay elsewhere or a drastically reduced rate. After requesting a refund or discount I was given $23.00 off one night! To top off the experience I got bites all over my body. Today the Dr. Informed me they were bed bug bites!

Everything, with the exception of one issue, was an enjoyable experience-especially when traveling with teenagers! My one issue was with housekeeping who was SUPPOSED to return between 1 & 2 o'clock to clean the room and leave clean linen, but never came back!! The front desk did, however, give me fresh linen and toiletries. Overall though, I would definitely return!!

Great beds but in this location, the price is too high just because the other hotel options are awful. Add to that the fact that booking through booking sites takes away your rewards it's almost just as well to stay at a budget hotel. Part of staying at upper tier hotels is for the perks of their rewards programs. This booking sure (and other booking sites) takes that away.

The hotel experience was great. I wish the price was cheaper but I can understand the rates given SAU Graduation going on. The breakfast was phenomenal & the gym was great. Kind of bummed that I did not get a chance to dip in the pool. The room was comfortable and clean.

We arrived early and were promptly checked in and given our 'keys.' The room was very clean and neat. The breakfast they offered was bountiful and tasty. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. We've enjoyed staying here several times now and will come again. Thanks!
