6/10 Good

Look elsewhere
Hotel is being rehabbed. Toilet was very low to the floor, water ran well from shower head but not tub faucet, ac couldnt keep up with the heat and made the room feel damp, closet had a rod less than 5 ft from the floor so my wedding dress bunched up on the floor. Had i visited beforehand i would have not chosen this hotel.

Good for the price
Definitely an outdated hotel, but for the price it is what I expected. The drain in the shower didnt drain very well. The A/C unit didn't work all that well and made the air in the room very muggy. Breakfast was delicious. Linens and towels were clean.

Lack of follow through
The hotel is older and clearly is based on the condition of the inside. The drain in my tub is slow so I brought it to the attention of the hotel. By the time I got back from my meetings the issue was resolved. I was staying five nights and did not require daily room cleaning but asked the desk clerk to have housekeeping clean the room. It was acknowledged but not done. The next day I made the same request pointing out that it had not been done before and the front desk clerk told me they would take care of it. When I returned from my meetings that day I found that no one had touched my room.

Good business trip
The staff was very friendly and helpful. My only complaint is that the lighting in the room was not very good.

6/10 Good

For $200 a night, it was very disappointing. The shower did not drain, so we had to have maintenance come. The TV was small and did not have streaming options. Breakfast was ok. The bed was hard but comfortable. The jacuzzi tub worked. The pool area was clean. Definitely NOT worth the price, though.
