"Eww"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Hotel common space was gross (stained, soiled carpet, dated). There was a nip in the stairwell that was not picked up during out stay of two days. The room was pretty clean but oddly set up and bathroom door hit vanity when open and wouldnt close. Just odd! Staff was extremely nice. Hotel was close to Dunn field. I would not recommend the hotel.

"Stay somewhere else."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
I would not pick this as my first choice. I did not have a sheet on two beds, had to go and ask the front desk. My phone did not have a dial tone so I could not call the front desk. No one came to clean my room during my two night stay. I needed to go downstairs to get more towels. On a plus, the staff was extremely helpful.

"Has gone downhill."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
This was my 3rd year in a row staying there for a softball tournament and my other experiences there were fine but not this time. Started with checking in very long line about 6 people waiting to check in, there definitely should have been more at at the front desk. I did book through a 3rd party for cheaper rates but I dont think that should matter I still gave my money to your company. Had three people in my party and when I booked it, it definitely said one bedroom suite so the three of us would have a place to sleep. But upon checking in I was told we were getting a studio and only two people fit. Asked the front desk what could be done and very unwilling to help or try to help find a solution. My husband slept on a pool float on the floor and that is just terrible. Asked for a cot and not one to offer, what hotel does not have a cot to offer? Next problem towels, if you have a full hotel you probably should have CLEAN towels. Time after time while waiting in the lobby guest after guest was turned away without any towels I even witnessed a disagreement about the towel situation no help or understanding from anyone at the front desk and the woman walked away angry. We deserve clean towels while staying at a hotel and we deserve them when we ask not continuously being told not right now come back later. After the woman walked away the Male employee was almost happy that he sent her away like he won or something (because yes they were talking about the lady when she walked away) and they saw me and others sitting there but they didnt care they still were talking about her. Its unfortunate that this was the experience that I and everyone else that also stayed. Hopefully you can fix these problems!

"Room Conditions"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The room was dirty. Hair in the sheets and comforter and on the floor in the bathroom. Ask for a couple extra towels and was told they didn't have enough and we should have hung our up to dry. We stayed two nights for a softball tournament that was nearby. We will never stay here again or recommend this hotel.
