Not what we expected

Pros: It was clean, we received extra towels with no problems and staff was nice.
Cons: Breakfast could have been upgraded a little.
Location: We didn’t do a lot of exploring, we were there for a memorial service.
We were told by Travelocity that the hotel had a pool and jacuzzi, bacon and eggs for breakfast,and a portable crib for our infant. The front desk and the housekeeper (who had been there 4 months) had never even seen a crib. The pool wasn’t opened for the season yet. We should have been told that. They had no jacuzzi at all. Breakfast was cereal and toast and fruit. I think we weren’t told the truth so we would book the rooms. We were very unhappy! We would have never booked here because this hotel didn’t have what we wanted but we were told they did. So we booked two rooms for two nights and we were offered $25.00 back. There are a lot of things wrong here. We will not be using Travelocity again.

You get what you pay for.

This hotel was so outdated. You really get what you pay for. The two front desk people were nice but the hotel was awful. They specify a deluxe continental breakfast. If toast, crunched up cereal and a muffin is deluxe breakfast then this place is for you. We ended up going out to eat for breakfast. Just pay $20 more to stay somewhere that has a real breakfast. You'll spend at least that going out to eat because they don't have anything there.
