Nice lobby- old rundown rooms in need of remodeling.
"When viewing the website the hotel looks very upscale and modern. The lobby was inviting and the front desk helpful. Driving through the dated grounds made us a bit weary, and entering the "Motel Style Entry" was just as interesting when entering the smoke filled room. I sat at the desk and realized that the desk had a bleach filled towel placed on the desk surface to try to remove the cigarette burn marks. I went to the restroom next and noticed that the tub was repaired several time instead of being replaced. We then headed to the restaurant to learn it wasn't open Friday night, but the desk said it would be open for breakfast. The bar was fun and entertaining like a cruiseship experience. The staff there was terrific! The next day we ordered room service for breakfast and it was horrible. We headed to the onsite restaurant for our lunch break to learn it was closed again. The sleep number bed was stuck on two diferent numbers, creating a big difference in bed comfort. What a huge disappointment. We will not stay again until they either remodel or replace it."
