Room was clean and looked nice, breakfast was very mediocre and ended abruptly, the pool and spa weren't heated, and customer service could've been better. Over all, an ok place to stay if you don't have high expectations.
As far as noise level goes this was the worst hotel since my stay in Carney's point, NJ . The first night, party goers gathered in the hallway with young child racing back and forth past my door. No one stayed in the "party room". Many many many party goers running back and forth from the pool to the hallway to the party room....Party goers actually in a group of five or six, standing outside my door and talking and drinking. I complained to the desk twice. Nothing was done. At one point, i opened my door and stood there wearing pajamas and bare feet. They finally went to bed and it got quiet at 130 am. At 645 am, the maid was vacuming my hallway right past my door. Then out came the broom, bang bang bang...banging the broom on the walls as she swept.
I complained and complained and complained to the front desk to no avail. I was assured that the second night would be quiet. And when i walked into the hotel at around 4pm, it was quiet as a tomb. Okay. very quiet. Then at one am in the morning, the party goers returned. I want to say there was about sixty of them. They were very loud, actually yelling to each other in the hallways. You know when people are drunk and talk too loud, they are actually yelling..well that's what was going on.
at 230AM, they got quiet and disappeared. AT 645am the next morning, the maid was back with her vacuum and her broom. At seven am, fifteen minutes later, the party goers all showed up for breakfast. And there was no sleep for me.
NEVER will I stay in this hotel. There is a local competition very close to this hotel, and i shall be attending this competition frequently on various weekends thru the year. I will make sure my fellow competitors know about this hotel.
And last but not least, I had a hard time competing on no sleep. And the hotel still charged me full price. I have alot more details i could talk about but i am tired of typing. If you party and stay up all night, this is the hotel for you!
Last but not least, i had to retrieve all the half full glass beer bottles and beer cans out from under my car. I am glad i thought to look. And yes,I love it that they allow dogs to stay there but no one picks up the dog poop. So watch where you walk!!!!!
We stayed here for four nights, and it was okay. Wouldn't have been my first choice, but the price and location were good for the area. Close to Wal-Mart and a fast food chicken place right out front. Easy to get to freeways, etc. (except for all the long traffic lights!) Mixed reviews on the staff - some were very customer oriented (special kudos to the fellow who offered to let us use his personal laptop computer when he dcouldn't get the computer in the Business Center to access the internet one days), while others acted like it was a bother when being asked for assistance. For a place built in 2009 (there was a plaque at the front desk), I was really surprised at how old and "tired" everything looked. The room was a good size, but looked old and worn. Poor lighting in the bathroom - hard to see well to apply makeup, etc. Breakfast was boring - very limited in choices and not much that I liked. Eggs and meat didn't taste fresh, so I had yogurt or waffles each morning. Ergonomically incorrect placement of the toilet tissue holder. All in all, an okay place for the price.
Great location, Walmart behind hotel...nice walk. Several eateries in the area. Staff very friendly...acknowledges/greets you. The food was good, many choices. Hotel needs cleaning...and old lining replaced!
