Very noisy. People running up and down the hall and over my room all night. Left the hotel around 3:00 AM because of all the noise. Charged me for 2 days after I cancelled the second day the day I checked in. It'll take 5--10 business days to return the money to my account. I won't be back.

Most disgusting bed ever. Stains all in the sheets from past guests. Just awful. AC didn’t work. I’ve never stayed at a hotel like this. Shouldn’t even be offered through travelocity

Hotel was ok.

Staff was always nice and friendly. Decor was nice. Beds were decent to sleep on. Sinks and toilet clean. Carpet may have been vacuumed down the middle but definitely needed to vacuum under the air conditioner (cobwebs) and along the beds and corners. The indoor pool was too cold to swim in and the hot tub was barely warm. Breakfast variety was ok. Make your own waffles, scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, potatoes, fruit, cereal, juice,
