Not a whole lot of majesty here..
Loud slamming doors all night. Screaming children. People put their garbage in the hallway, piles of towels creating tripping hazards. Location was good, staff was typical. Room was ok, wanted to be modern but left the gross 20yr.old curtains. Shower was awful.. horrible water pressure. All this while paying for the “upgraded” suite. Restaurants are operated on paper thin schedule.. no queso at a “Mexican” restaurant. Breakfast might as well be a feed line.

Satisfying over all🙏
It’s an old place, but well kept. Pool in the center was pleasing for kids. Rooms small but ok n clean. The restaurant was very nice experience and freshly delicious food. Easy access to fre-ways, and nice location. The second night, neighbor on top, we’re very noisy early in the morning “on top”, their showering made laud sounding!.

Very dated with mold in bathroom
We stayed in two separate rooms during our stay as we added on a night right before our stay. Both rooms were extremely small, dated, and in desperate need of a complete overhaul. Beds were some of the worst we’ve slept on. I have no back problems but woke up with back pain each day. Bathroom area is tiny. Biggest complaint though is the mold in bathrooms. Both rooms had a lot of black mold in the shower/toilet room. Mold on walls, ceiling, shower tiles, and grout. Shower definitely isn’t cleaned throughly between guests. This is a huge health concern. We booked this hotel based on all the reviews and ratings but it was a big mistake. The staff was very friendly, Waffle Spot has good food, and the pool is nice and I saw them cleaning it and testing the water each morning. Unfortunately it’s not enough for us to stay here again. Pay the extra $30-$50 for a more updated hotel.
