To be clear, I did not stay at this hotel. I’m rating my experience of trying to set up a block of rooms so that any one else planning a wedding or event can possibly be saved the hassle. I initially called on February 28th needing a block of rooms for my wedding. They seemed helpful over the phone. They...

We left a day early to beat some bad weather that was happening at home early Saturday morning.

Room was just a typical king...

Negatives: beer bottle and dip container under bed, outdated decor and bathrooms, indoor pool was cold. Positives: pool and mini-golf are unique, breakfast is decent for the price, overall seemed clean, had mini-fridge and microwave.

We needed a place to stay on our drive home after flying back in to D.C. This hotel was on our way and we usually enjoy Holiday Inns. We prefer Holiday Inn Expresses, but haven't had any issues before. This hotel needs a complete overhaul. Our room, while a decent size, was gross. The bathroom, the ceiling, the floor, were...

First let me say this hotel was a colleague choice not mine. I would imagine that you could find a cleaner and more updated Motel 6 in the area than this place. It's so disgusting!
