Horrible bar service. Resturant was a mess, dishes everywhere, and bar tender was rude. Breakfast was ok...things didn't work, French toast was hard, coffee was nasty. The man working was amazing though! Very entertaining!

The hot breakfast buffet was very good, breakfast potatoes, sausages, eggs, French toast, juice, coffee and more. This pretty much made up for the outdated room. The man working in the breakfast area was very friendly and went above and beyond to provide great customer service.

Very impressed with how comfortable the beds were. The heating unit was outdated but more than functional. The layout is a bit confusing, you can get lost if you aren't paying attention, but I read reviews saying that before and was expected. Overall very pleasant stay. No issues, other than the remarkable cleaning staff that was knocking at 9:30am to...
