Nice hotel

Pros: Kids loved the pool, the rooms were nice.
Cons: They had signs for vending machines, they had been removed and instead you had to purchase things behind the counter. Remove the vending signs then.
The hotel was nice, clean, and the staff friendly. We had waited to late to book a room for the state fair and it was one of the few options left available. Was likely more fancy than what we needed but it worked. Although the staff was really nice, I would say often when I called the desk to ask a question - they didn't know the answers.

needs to be renovated.

Cons: Noisy, no free breakfast
Rooms were shabby. Carpet worn and dirty. Rooms were not very clean. Very noisy- you could hear people next door coughing. Parking is a disaster- VERY hard to find hotel from main road because entrance is extremely inconvenient. Overall low quality hotel. No free breakfast.

Pleasantly surprised!

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
This was the first time I used this "blind" approach to saving money and booking a hotel. I was so pleased when I saw what hotel I was actually booked at. I went on line to see what kind of deal I could get going directly through the hotel's "best price" website and it was 50% higher.
