4/10 Fair

The hotel has been under construction/remodel for years. I travel with my pups, and once again, given a room which smelled like a perfume counter in a department store. Talk about masking dog smell… Not even a good value. Not going back.

Avoid this place if you can
Paid $900+ for three rooms for one night. This place was not a hotel, just a motel and even then is overpriced. Disappointed in every way.

Bad cost/benefit option
Hotel WAY past due to an upgrade (it is in progress, but it should had happen years ago). My room has a liability bomb, with non-working bathroom door, slow tube drainage, broken furniture, questionable electric connections, loud HVAC... considering the night rate this is one of the worst hotels I've stayed. Next year I'll stick with my gut and stay in one of the brand hotels nearby.
