The location is great. Do not pay full price for a room. Go onto a travel site like travelocity or something and find a cheap price then call the hotel property directly and they will match the price. DO NOT PAY FULL PRICE. These are $50-$70 a night rooms not $100 a night rooms. The rooms are clean. The towels are clean. All the staff that we have had interactions with are very nice. If we want our room cleaned we have to ask to have it done because we typically sleep in very late so the maids tend to skip over our room. The pool area appears to be nice. We haven't swam in the pool but there are two hot tubs and an adult deck for sunbathing. The deck is nice because the building shields the sun in the actual pool area. We haven't eaten at the restaurant but there is one on property and there is also a little food shop with ice cream and some bathroom items like toothpaste etc. Parking is included and decent. There is an Enterprise rental car company here so some of the parking is taken up by that. The rooms that face the pool on the first floor have to endure radio music that is played over speakers by the pool. Even when the AC is running you can still hear the radio. It plays from 10am till about 11pm. The first room they put us in the AC was broken so they moved us to the first floor room which was a nice room but we were unaware of the pool music issue. If it's cool outside and no one is using the pool they seem to not play the music. The beds are good. The room does not smell musty or old. It's newly painted and modernly decorated. Flat screen TV, microwave, coffee pot and hair dryer in room. The free wi fi is completely worthless. It works less than half the time no matter where you are in the building and a paid wire option is not available in the room but may be available in the business center. If you're looking for a clean hotel room and you plan on being gone most of the time it should be fine. Make sure you get a cheaper price online and have the property match it. We probably won't stay here again.
