10/10 Exceptional

2 thumbs up
It was very well kept, clean, everything was in very good repair. One very much appreciated item was hot water and excellent water pressure as well on those lines a rarity these days was to have a hotel that didnt overly soften their water. The water tasted good and didnt leave you feeling slimy. Bed was comfortable like the one at home. The clerk let us check in early since we were on the way to a wedding and needed to change. No problem accomodating with a ground level room since we both have bad knees. Wasnt totally needed as they do have an elevator. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a good clean quiet place to stay. There is even a convenience store about a block away just up the drive from the hotel.

Not worth it!
Poor bathroom conditions, loud backround noise - overall you can do much better elsewhere.

4/10 Fair

Majorly disappointed in this property. Hallway and stairs were not vacuumed. Breakfast had spoiled fruit and a waffle machine that had a very long line. Had to drive to get breakfast. Part of the lobby was under construction. For $150 could have stayed at several newer properties that are much nicer.

4/10 Fair

Little to be desired.
We went as a family with 3 different rooms. One room had not been cleaned. There were empty cans and garbage shoved under the bed. The 2nd had 2 phones and neither worked. And the 3rd had very loud heater that made it very difficult to sleep when it kicked on through the night. The pool was dirty. Door was propped open with a fan running to air the pool area out. The hot tub was closed with dirt on the bottom and mold like substance floating on top. When we got in the pool it didn’t last as there was huge clumps of hair floating around the pool and the pool jets were not working. When trying to get ahold of the front desk to help with some room issues, there was either a sign they had stepped away or the phone line was busy. I don’t usually leave reviews and definitely not negative ones, but this was a very uncomfortable stay and we will not be returning to this property.

Was not a good experience. We turned in the blow dryer and there were cockroaches that flew out and they were alive! Moved us to another room where it was dirty. Will not be staying again.

Coffee pot in the bathroom by the toilet
Well the hotel itself was clean. The shower curtain was ripped. The sink had a big crack in it, so needs to be updated. Only 3 out of 6 lamps had light bulbs that worked. My major complaint was the sleeping situation. The bed was the most uncomfortable bed we have ever slept in. Neither my husband nor I got any sleep that night. I was in need of a chiropractor the next day. The pillows were too soft to the point you couldn't even feel them underneath your head.We will not be returning there again.

2/10 Poor

The room was very dirty. My small son found a condom wrapper and there was hair in the sheets which did not look washed. We were switched to a new room which was also dirty. There was a ton of trash surrounding the property. The pool was dirty and very cold. Food on the deck. Just gross.
