      • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

      they no longer offer breakfast due to the health department and new management, so do not let them charge you some nonsense resort fee!! the hotel needs updating badly- my room felt a little scary and the artwork on the wall was a closeup of some woman's face and was outright terrifying. I just needed a place to sleep so it was fine but I wouldn't go back- WAY too overpriced for what it is.

      This property was nothing like what is advertised. Although you show this property as providing complimentary breakfast, they no longer provide it. The property is also extremely worn, carpets and furniture in public areas are worn and dirty. Our room phone did not work the entire 4 days we were there, although we reported it twice. Also, the cable was out (apparently in all rooms) the few channels we were able to get were poor reception. Management said this was being fixed, but it was not corrected at any time during our 4-day stay. I would never return to this property or recommend it to others.
