Very clean. Enjoyed the fresh popcorn machine in the lobby. Hot tub was perfect 103F

We booked this hotel for my son's bday to go to Dinoland and to go swimming since it is in a colder month and most pools are closed. Once we got here they said the pool would be closed until 2 the following day (once we had checked out). They had an incident in it earlier in the week and had to have it cleaned. It should never take that long to have a pool cleaned. If I would have known I would have cancelled my reservation and gone somewhere else since my kids were looking forward to this and we were planning on swimming most the rainy day. On the day we were leaving check out was at 11. The cleaning lady was knocking at our door at 9:30 asking what time we were going to plan on leaving. If we were going to leave early she wanted to clean earlier. This was a very disappointing experience overall.

I highly recommend this hotel as it is conveniently located, very clean and friendly staff.

The stay was great and was very comfortable. However the cable box was missing but the had fast internet so I was able to stream netflix.

I could not get a receipt because " got room through Orbitz". It is mangers policy. That makes the customer have to go online to get a receipt for the bean counter back at the office.

Clean comfortable rooms, good breakfast. Only complaint was that the pool was a little cool, but we had fun playing in it anyway.

We stayed to visit Dinosaur Nat'l Mon. Good access for that. Room was clean & nice. Staff wa very friendly & breakfast wa great. However, the pool was so very cold & a disappointment for our kids for sure. Pretty small swimming area. Other than that it was very good.

great bed clean had microwave to use for our nightly movie popcorn. priority club membership points for airline travel in the future!
