large suite. Bathtub drain completely clogged and in room phone never worked. Pool area VERY loud and I called the front desk to have them ask the pool users to keep the noise down, which they never did.

Last minute decision

Cons: Room air quailty
Location: Very convenient to airport with gas station across the street. Plenty of eating options close by too.
Hotel is in process of renovation. Exterior and lobby are beautiful. Room was nice but had the old musty smell. Need to put fresheners in the air conditioner or air out the bottom floor somehow. Great place to stay.

Very nice stay

We stayed for 2 days. Room was very clean. Although they are doing a major remodel, they were very accommodating. This will be a great hotel when they are done.
