We stayed here for one night recently because the price was right and we wanted a hotel with a pool for the kids to use. It's hard to find hotels that will take a family of 5 so we were glad to see this hotel would. Overall we were satisfied - the room was large and held the five of us easily with room to spare. The room's decor was dated but it was neat and clean (other than a few spots on the rug) and we felt comfortable there.
We used the pool twice and the kids had fun swimming. There were plenty of deck chairs and although they ran out of towels in the evening, the staff was quick to give us extra and brought more out once we let them know. My husband used the fitness room and was satisfied with the equipment in general (although one of the treadmills was not working correctly).
Breakfast was very basic but met our needs - cereal, toast, bagels, waffles, pastries, coffee and juice. The staff was polite and helpful and brought ice water when we requested it. Some type of protein offering would have been good too but we didn't leave hungry. :)
The staff was responsive, friendly and helpful when we needed them, such as when one of the vending machines ate my $1.50. They quickly replaced my money and made a note of which machine it was. Staff members said hello as we walked by the front desk or saw them in the halls.
Although you can tell that this used to be a much higher-quality (and busier) hotel in the past, everything was neat, clean and maintained appropriately. If you're looking for four or five star quality, I'd skip this one, but if you're looking for someplace to stay for a night or two that's clean and has the basics, this is a good option, especially for larger families.
