The internet was almost unusable, and when I called to complain the front desk’s response was too many people must be using it. I would have thought...

We spent four nights here and enjoyed our experience. The rooms are on the small side but clean and sufficient. We requested a poolside room but I wish we hadn't. I did not consider the noise of the pool being an issue to get our two year old to sleep. This is not the fault of anybody at the hotel....

Granted it was the offseason, but couldnt beat what we got for 50 dollars. No complaints about the room, clean, hot showers, microwave and fridge. Hottub and pool area was well kept. Free breakfast exceeded the expectation by a mile: pancakes, eggs, sausage, and biscuits with gravey. For a discount category hotel, i was impressed. Would highly reccommend
