Went to spend the night away from home to treat my hubby and kids. The room smelled like a dead animal. The desk chair broke and was replaced with another broken one. The bath tub had mold in the crevices. There were stains on the couch and yellow stains on the duvet. The pool was freezing and cloudy, couldn't even...

We have a large group that camps together in the summer, and in January we go to a hotel where we can hang out, the kids can swim, we eat, have a few cocktails and just relax. In the past we have stayed where there is a central pool with rooms around the pool which now is very hard to...

My family and I recently stayed for one night at this hotel and found it to be friendly and clean. What we wish was better, was the quality of the food for breakfast. It was just OK. They provided excellent service all around.

This was a very roomy suite with a comfortable bed and the pressure in the shower was fabulous. I don't think I've ever had a shower with that much pressure. I didn't want to get out from under it. There was a separate sink/counter area off the bathroom that was also very roomy so I was able to spread out...
