In the past I stayed at this property and the experience was okay. However in 2016 I had reserved a room in April and come December we arrived. They said that we were going to get two beds but when I arrived there what we got was one regular bed and one cot. The cot was a little squeaky and...

I had a feeling this place was going to be a sh#thole, but friends told us that it was updated. NOT TRUE!!! Our room was old and smelled funky. It was pretty clean , but we went to visit our friends room, which was down by the pool, they wanted to move the couch so we could all sit together,...

We stayed here 4 years ago and the place was a dive. This time, we had to work a meeting in the conference room, but stayed at a nearby Hampton Inn. The place hasn't changed, so I'm really glad we opted for the Hampton. In 2012, I reported that the sound system was an old freestanding speaker system; when turned...

There was a demon in my room at around 3:00. I woke up terrified. Also when i woke up i had scratches all over my body. I may still be possessed about 4 days in the future. I cannot sleep at night. Also the only cereal options were rice crispies and frosted flakes.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I am wondering if a recently deceased employee was the culprit Demon. She had very long finger nails and she was a bit of a prankster. Rest assured she is still is still on property so she did not follow you home. I will suggest to the Banquet Manager to...

The worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Ever. Stayed here one night for a soccer tournament and promptly checked out the next morning. There was mold and cracks in the shower. My daughter's sheets had a stain. The heat kicked on full blast in the middle of the night so it was about 85 degrees when we woke up....

Our room was not cleaned when we arrived, there were used towels and an open bar of soap. One of our beds was also broken and slanted noticeably. We went back to ask for a new room and they had none. So I asked if it could be cleaned and they said the best they could do was give us...

The hotel and room was nice. All was well until I woke up the next with bug bites everywhere. Of course they said they didn't find any. Claim it might have been spider bites. I went to the doctor who said they were consistent with bed bug bites, i had to get a shot and two RX's. They refunded half...

I stay at this property yearly for several years and the comments about this place are accurate. This stay was slightly better as for the first time I didn't have issues with my room. The property is a little cleaner than in the past. Room is dated with the furniture scratched and worn, at least clean. Common areas such as...

Never recommend, rooms unclean, beds tiny, food bad, smells awful, bad service, bathrooms unsanitary and unclean, hair on walls used towels on the racks. 2 nights here was a stretch for the quality of this hotel. If u don't want to be disgusted while you sleep and have to wear shoes around the room, I would find somewhere else! I...
