Nasty Room. Cleaning people walked in on us with the Do Not Disturb sign on the door offering us beer? wanted to cancel our room and get our prepaid money back and they refused. Shuttle was late, they told us on the phone our 6:15 a.m time was reserved. we got to the office at 5:50 am they told us we were on the list for 7:50 am (not what they told us when we booked the room). At night Party's in the parking lot, people on the roof drinking. The continental breakfast was a plastic container of cereal that had 2-3 different days mixed together, some cookies and a tray of danishes, no milk at 8am so they put it away...Nasty Nasty Nasty. The room had electric outlet covers missing closet door missing, shower that didn't drain, bathroom light would shut off when you showered. We witnessed the cleaning people remake the beds when people checked out instead of replacing sheets. STAY AWAY they need to be closed, they are beyond run down-they are unsafe. And they wont give a refund we paid just under $100. per night what a rip off.

Room Tip: Stay away- Nasty

I and my wife pre-booked a room for two days with a Jacuzzi Tub because our daughter was graduating the Navy Academy. When we arrived we found someone else's clothes hanging in the bathroom, ice cream in the freezer and hair around the tub. The carpet smelled and the furniture seemed like it came from someone else's trash pile (I am not exaggerating). And the smoke detector above the bed is really questionable. Around the pool area, the water fountain had a birds nest in it. The bathroom was used as a storage room. The way that they get you is you have to pre book the room weeks in advance for the Navy graduation. When you arrive to see the room you can not cancel your room because all the other hotels in the area are full. Do not book here!

Room were not clean, boxsprings were broken, We ended up cancelling our room and staying some where else. Save the hassle and pay a little more and stay somewhere safe, people live here and were even cooking out on the grill. This place is not family friendly

Recommended by priceline. Wow! Was I surprised at what I paid for. A total dump! I'm thankful I didn't see any bugs though. The place as a whole is very outdated. Security is a joke, surveillance cameras don't work and the door chain is handing by two loose crews. Each of the three nights I was awakened by cop car sirens. The room is out dated as is the rest of the building. When I opened the door I was overwhelmed by the smell of must and carpet freshener. The tub has several cigarette burns along the edge as well as the microwave. The toilet paper holder is broken as is the tv remote. The T.V. is a 1994 model that has a horizontal line throughout the picture.
My Wi-Fi was out upon arrival which the staff did not disclose. I had asked the staff over two days when it would be fixed. Both times I was told only the Manager can fix the Wi-Fi. Nothing more than a smoke screen, it never got resolved. As for the pool, it was disturbingly green and no where close to being ready. Stay at your own discretion!
