Daniel group August 4, 2022
Positives: Beds were comfortable and TV had a good number of channels to choose from
Negatives: Just about everything, limited staffing and those that were there we poorly trained. I saw people who had reservations turned away because there were no cleaned rooms. I had to wait until 6PM to check in while they cleaned rooms. I ran out of towels the second day and had to run down a house cleaning person (which there were only two that I could find) to get additional towels. There did not offer cleaning service to any stay over rooms. The air conditioning did not work and we could not open the window because the screen was removed.

Christi review category business travellers August 3, 2022
Positives: The price was great and the breakfast was good.
Negatives: The hotel was overbooked and their was only one employee so the wait was an hour for everyone. The lady working the front desk was in a masquerade costume not sure why. The swimming pool was green.
Great rate but you get...
Luiz review category business travellers August 2, 2022
Positives: The staff tried their best to solve the issues we had. Despite the difficulties, we had a room in the end.
Negatives: The hotel was clearly understaffed. There were huge lines of people trying to get a room and only on staff. Many reservations were cancelled. We only had a room after 23h (waiting hours), mostly because we couldn't leave (as we were too tired).

Susan family with young children August 1, 2022

Negatives: Front desk staff - unfriendly and irritable. She was overworked. No help and lots of people waiting AC not working. Didn't sleep. Room hot.
Sheri group August 1, 2022
Positives: Beds were comfortable, rooms very spacious. emplyess very helpful
Negatives: This could be a nice hotel if MANAGMWENT would do their job, invest un upgrades AND pay their employees MUCH BETTER. This was the worst hotel stay I have had in years. The staff was GREAT and did everything within their power to accommodate the guests. There were only three people there, one at the front desk (who also had to clean rooms), one housekeeper and one maintenance person, all of whom went above and beyond, and always with a smile and good attitude. However, due to no fault of their own, this place needs a major overhaul. Because there was only one housekeeper, she could not get all rooms cleaned in time and some people checking in had to wait for hours to get a room, while others were turned away because there was no way to get a room cleaned for them. Long lines formed at the front desk, while the front desk person was trying to help get rooms ready. The AC in most rooms did not work, the garbage cans were overflowing with garbage. The key card readers on many of the room doors did not work, ever, so guest had to wait at the front desk for long periods of time waiting to get help getting into their rooms. ALL of the entrance/exit doors were left unlocked at all times, not much security to keep out non-guest, in a not-so-great location. AGAIN, the three employees that were there did EVERYTING they could to accommodate everyone.
An investment in the property...

Negatives: Everything was terrible. Drugged out employees. Not to mention the dead body they removed from 174
Never again
Brent solo traveller July 31, 2022
Positives: Nice property.
Negatives: At 3:00 pm check-in time, long line and some guests being turned away. My reservation was in their system, but room would not be ready until after 6:00 pm. When returned, line even longer. In @ 7pm.
Good overall, despite staffing shortages...
Jamie family with young children July 31, 2022
Positives: Nothing but it is easy to find off the main interstate.
Negatives: Several people in line to get a room, long wait time with an apparent cleaning crew walkout. It seems like poor management skills, and probably low staffing. They had a food service person stay to help clean and front desk crew clean rooms.
Apparent failure of staffing crew.
Lee group July 31, 2022
Positives: Location to babe ruth tournament park
Negatives: No. Hair in sausage. Watered down Apple juice. Black mold in ceiling from water damage. Shower that didn't drain-had to use Drano--twice. Couldn't get more towels and never had employee at front desk to help. Pool was allgae green and filthy. Halls smelled like mold and urine. Entrances were not secure and didn't lock after business hours. Worst stay ive ever had
Horrible place. Health hazard and...
Melinda family with young children July 31, 2022
Positives: The property is conveniently located with an outdoor pool, which is what we were looking for in the hot weather we are experiencing.
Negatives: Maintenance has obviously been neglected since our last stay. the first room we were given had no AC, and the refrigerator didn’t work. we were moved to an upstairs room (no elevator) and the smoke detector was beeping. i managed to find someone to fix that, eventually. The pool itself seemed clean enough, though there are tiles missing all over and the kiddie pool has algae in it. but the pool area was a mess. Garbage everywhere, no clean towels, trash can full. We had breakfast included in our reservation, but the restaurant is not open.
It wasn’t what we expected...
