Large and like a rabbit warren
Very large hotel solit on two sides of the street. Difficult to find your way around. Burger and Beer restaurant closed too early and the staff reaction was dismissive.

Clean room, very dated but to be expected with the price. Check in was slow and the shuttle to rooms is a pain. Would not return am afraid

Okay place for a stopover
Took over 30 minutes in the check in line. They seem to be lacking staff. They put us in tower next door, which was a 15 minute walk, and then our keys did not work. Called the front desk from another room, and they said they would send them up with the bellhop in about 15 minutes. So a long wait to get the room.

Terrible Stay!!!!
We had no power in the hotel room at all! The water was dirty due to the pipes messed up. We couldn’t shower at all. I had to go buy big bottles of water from Walgreens so me and my family can brush or teeth and wash or face. When I went to find out what was going on they said it was a small fire and everything is shut down we couldn’t use the tv or nothing with power at all. We was never alerted by the hotel at all about the fire. No security came around to say anything to anyone.Everyone was going downstairs to figure out why the hotel was so dark!! Very horrible stay I will not be back anytime soon.
