    Room was great but hallways not so clean. Hallway uneven for walking.

  • 3.2


    Room smelled like urine. When asked to move rooms was told they were full. Asked for housekeeping to clean room to eliminate the urine odor was told they did not have hose keeping on site. Was given a bottle of Fabreeze. Got ready for bed and looked at the pillows and going a blood stain on one of the pillows. Brought the pillow to the front desk on the morning, to make sure it did not end up back on my bed. Instead I just did not get a pillow. On the last night I relinded the staff that I needed a pillow. When we arrived back at the room after diner, no pillow. Went for the front desk and asked for a pillow. Was given one. On the way back to the room, looked at the pillow and it was the exact same one with the same blood stain. Went back down to desk and asked for a manger. Sorry no Manager on site till morning. No manager on site in morning either. Disgusting place and some of the worst service imaginable. Stay away

    The location.

    Need correctly sized pillows for the bed. Front desk staff could have been a bit more friendlier.

    Roaches in the room shower rod broken stinky smelly

  • 5.4

    Location excellent for the purpose of being there. The grounds and surrounding activities were great! The front desk staff and surrounding atmosphere was friendly and welcoming.

    The air conditioner was inconsistent and was not working properly which inturn did not allow for comfort in a nights sleep. The refrigerator went out and needed to be replaced and with food and beverages needing to be discarded due to the time it took to be looked at and replaced. We were offered and given toiletries but no room services. We would love to return or recommend a stay there however , these discrepancies need to be addressed or checked prior!

  • 5.8

    The location is great! Easy to get around town and the area in general! Pool was nice and a little park was right next door.

    This place was badly in need of work! It is just too big for the area. The smell from the ancient rugs was pretty awful. There is no feeling of security, as most of the exterior doors could be entered without a room key!Location

  • 4.2

    It was outdated, seemed a dirty. Pillows were lumpy.

  • 3.2


    Room smelled like mildew! Furniture didn't match and was stained!!! Hallway carpets stained...,Every single elevator button was missing!!!!! This hotel was very poorly maintained!!!! Regular rate was $199....we paid $89 and feel the room was not even worth that!!! Will never stay at this hotel again or go through Booked.net

  • 4.6

    The views were amazing. The room was rather comfortable with a balcony.

    The entire facility needs to be updated.There are no buttons in the elevator. You have to use your finger or an object to choose your floor. The ceilings were sagging in some areas. There were chips on the floor for an entire day without being cleaned up. There are no towelsurprises provided for the pool. I also didn't realize that the pool is public and not only for people staying in the hotel which I thought was bizarre. I will not be returning here as a guest but I will certainly walk over to enjoy a sunset.
