During check I was informed of a $100 security fee that was taken on a different POS machine... very odd. Was told I had access to my room from outside drove around building to no avail. All hallways smelled of Marijuana even though non smoking rooms. Hot tub had no water. Outside our room a garbage bag and dirty wet towels remained the entire stay. Walls are very thin can hear everything. 2 doors shut every time someone returns to room very loudly. Breakfast you will leave hungry not much offered. $10 surcharge if you take anything back to your room too. Think it may have been owner or manager that came in to check things over. He coughed and hacked all over. Saw him grab a napkin wipe is hand and proceeded to wipe counters with same napkin. Gross. While sitting having breakfast the beautiful french doors don't even fit properly 4" missing at top. Horrible experience will not be back and will tell people NOT to stay here. Price would have been ok but not for the current condition of place. Be prepared too the parking lot is a diaster.

I would definitely not go back. Stayed in hunting fishing camps that were 100 times cleaner. We were in a pool side room for one night. Washroom was a disaster mold, tub looked like it was taken out of a garbage.

when we entered the room it smelled like strong cigarette covered up by cheap perfume. we asked the clerk for a new room and at first she was going to give us the adjoining room. we refused and asked for a different room away from the elevator. the smell was also in the lobby in front of the elevator.

We did not enjoy this stay. This hotel is filthy and run down. We stayed in a room off of the pool. The fixtures are horrible, it really needs to be updated. The room smelled so bad that we went out and bought lysal wipes and spray. We didn't get much sleep because we were scared to sleep in the beds. I would never go back and would not recommend to anyone.

We were booked for 2 nights and only stayed 1 night only because we couldn’t find another available hotel. The room was disgusting. We went out and bought Lysol and other nice smelling products to make it through the night. The tub/shower was so awful we didn’t even get in the shower. The hot tub was not working so the jacked the heat up in the pool. The young ladies we met in the hallway advised of potential bacteria so we didn’t go in the pool. The carpets throughout the hallways are filthy. We were told to park at the back of the hotel and that was a little scary. We parked at the front where there was light. Never again!

I was very surprised with the lack of cleanliness of this hotel. My room actually smelled badly ( it was non smoking room, but smelled like stale tobacco smoke.) The refridgerator did not work. The bed was comfortable.

The room was nice enough and the bed was great. The Internet service was horribly slow and kept disconnecting. Breakfast was limited to things that could be toasted and my car was broken into, so my day did not get a good start.

Was suppose to stay here for 2 days since we had a tournament going on, but ended up switching after one night. I'm pretty lenient about a lot of things and not very picky but this was awful. This place was sketchy and disgusting, teammates and I didn't feel safe or comfortable walking alone to go to and from other rooms. The showers were questionable, we had to get them to change the sheets in the rooms. We only walked by the pool area, and it was so hot and humid that it was questionable if there was bacteria breeding in that water. Interacted with a pair of women and they had went out and bought cleaning supplies to clean there room. The only good thing about this hotel was the bed's because they were new. The place would reek of cigarette smoke and booze.

An extremely dated environment. The continental breakfast was very basic, Walmart pastries, etc. Breakfast area was dirty.

We we overall ok with the hotel there was alot of broken things or things not working and the hotel did not seem well taken care of l.
