    The lobby is bright, shiny and clean. It goes totally downhill from there. We had a hard time finding the room due to poor signs. The room was terrible. Out of 4 lights, 3 were either burned out or the bulbs were missing. The beds were not double as I had booked. There were 2 full beds in the room. The bedding was yellowish and had hair on it. We thought it looked like dog hair. The pillows were very old and lumpy and had big round yellowish brown stains on them. Again they were yellowish and very old looking. My daughter stripped the bedding off to look at the mattress using her phone as there wasn't enough light to really see it!! She thought it would be safer to sleep on the mattress using our own bedding but again was afraid of bed bugs, etc. Instead we booked a room across the street and got a refund. The staff didn't bat an eye at giving a refund. When I explained why I wanted one, the manager replied, "I'm very sorry. I've had those complaints before." Do not book a room there!!

    Superb

    There was a breakfast and it was good. The staff got a microwave for me so I could cook dinner in my room and relax. Everything was good and I would stay again.

    Fabulous

    The price.

    Minor maintenance issues--e.g. outside keylock didn't work. Desk clerk, though friendly and helpful, seemed inexperienced and poorly trained.

    The price for the room was fair.

    The shower was not working correctly in room 214. It sprayed all over the room, over the curtain, got the entire room wet including cleanX, TP, clothing bath mat. There were people sleeping on furniture in the lobby and hallways.

    Nothing! We won't be staying there in the future.

    Waited at the front desk for 15 minuies before anyone returned to check us in. Our room had a bad odor when we first walked in. Turning on air conditioner helped some. Room was badly worn. carpet. bed spread. The bed linen and towels were dingy. TV only had a few channels. No coffee pot. In hind sight, we don't know why we didn't demand our money back and leave to find a decent place to spend the night. We won't be coming back.

    Good

    Not much. The staff was frindly and helpful but disorganized. One person at the desk simply left her post and went home. Her relief didn't show up.

    The facility does not live up to advertised promises. For example the pool was not operational which was not revealed until you got there. We were assigned a room without heat and transferred to another room whish was already occupied. The staff did its best and we eventually got a heated room that was unoccupied. The facility really needs to be closed down and renovated-big bucks. The foyer still has remnants of its former grandeur.

    Location. We stayed there last year and it was OK then.

    Half of the lights didn't work. The TV was an antique and would go bad after warming up. Bed seemed to be "worn out." The free continental breakfast was very minimal compared to most.
