Nice place after a long day at the river

Pros: check in gentle were nice, good air conditioner, great beds
Cons: broken left elevator, rest room way to small
Location: great restaurants close by
The rest room is way to small, you have no room to move around. This was in our room...not sure about everyone else. I thought when me and my son booked our rooms it said a free breakfast, "Not Free" $11.00. The elevator on the left was broke and we waited a while to get up to our room. The gentlemen that checked us in were very nice though.

The only problem I had with this hotel that unless I booked directly with them they would not give me points for my stay
