Mold under sink. Website offered breakfast and a restaurant. There was not a restaurant. Breakfast was nutragrain bars and coffee. We picked this place as we needed to save time as we had an early start time for a college tour. Pool was also advertised as an amenity and was closed. Check in staff was not friendly. Checkout staff was very friendly.

Room was very nice. Comfy beds, clean, etc. Breakfast in the dining room - not good. Eggs and hash browns very greasy. Disappointing.
