4/10 Fair

More than disappointing
Check-in attendant pleasant. We asked for a queen room and it seemed to us the bed was a double. Internet not working. AC leaked all over the floor and we used bath towels to soak it up. Lots of partying and consistent loud talking and door slamming on both sides of our room. Car alarms kept going off until 1:30 in the morning. All chairs had large stains in them. Frig was quite small and 'freezer' compartment didn't freeze. When I reported our experience to the check-out attendant, the only thing she said was 'sorry about that'. Showed absolutely no real concern about it. The breakfast was very good. Nice variety of hot and cold foods. I was absolutely shocked that this hotel received an 8.1 overall rating and reviews were all good. I made my decision to stay there based on this info. However, we will not be staying here again in the future.

4/10 Fair

We went to spend the day at the pool and spa but it was closed. Kids were disappointed. Black Bear Diner is not on site. We found hair and nail clippings in the room. Only enough coffee for one person. The shower sprayed out of the handle more than out of the head. Does not look like the pictures at all. The continental breakfast was ok. Staff was pleasant and helpful especially when the tv and internet wouldn’t work.

The room was clean. It just needs lots of repairs. The ceiling is falling the sink area abd the texure on the walls is chipping. The carpets are stained. The outlets dont hold a plug. Upgrades needed.

One issue.
We would have given a higher overall rating if it wasn't for the faulty WiFi conditions in our room. Early in our stay we brought it to the front desk attention and they said they would tell the manager but there was no improvement. Everthing else was very good, enjoyed the free breakfast.

Needs remodel. There were mismatched furniture. Not placed in proper spots in room. Carpet replacement needed. Ceiling repair. We were thankful for a clean bed to sleep in. The breakfast was sufficient. But yeah, needs an overhaul.

Good staff but sketchy neighborhood
The front desk staff are friendly and helpful. The room is older and badic with "old motel" smell (carpet deodorizer over cigarette). Area around hotel is sketchy. We moved out to another hotel on the first night due to loud argument in parking lot. Just felt uncomfortable in the area.
