The elevators both broke several times throughout our stay. The hotel was dingy and rundown. Lamps were broken in the room. Mattress was lumpy. While cheap, definitely not somewhere I will ever stay again if I can avoid it. Definitely disappointed overall.

This was a family holiday trip with a 2 room suite. The things that were most disappointing were the lack of cleanliness in the suit and maintenance issues that were apparent (wall paper cracks and peeling , for instance). This was unfortunate due to the pricing of the suite.

This hotel is in a great location, but is a little tired. It was clean enough, but the lighting was terrible. We did not have a microwave.

We gave them a second chance and very unhappy we did. Just like last time one of the elevators didn't work. Just like last time service at the restaurant was poor and the meals were totally burnt....should have known again since no one else was there. Pool below average and hot tub broken down. Breakfast was very poor especially for...

Stayed here because this hotel was on wrestling tournament selected hotels. I'd estimate that at least 15+ cars in the parking garage had windows smashed in, electronics stolen, everything thrown around. Rooms were OK - old, well worn. Same for the bath. Otherwise OK. Only 1 of the two elevators worked. Stairways were open despite signs claiming no access -...
