Poor2.0
VERY UNSATISFIED
THE HOTEL IS VERY MISLEADING FROM THE PICTURES. WE ARRIVED AND NEED A ROOM WITH TWO BEDS BUT COULDNT GET ONE. I SLEPT ON A COT THE WHOLE TIME. THE ROOMS WERE VERY OUTDATED AND WALLPAPER PEELING OFF THE WALLS. WE WERE CHARGED 20 DOLLARS A DAY TO PARK. FOR THE PRICE I PAID FOR 2 ROOMS FOR 2 DAYS AND THE 7 HOUR DRIVE I EXPECTED A LITTLE MORE. I WILL NEVER BE STAYING HERE AGAIN.

Good6.0
Decent hotel, but not much bang for the buck.
We wanted a hotel on the river walk and that’s what we got, however, it was so far down the river that nothing was convenient. The hotel has been upgraded, but more of the upgrades were spent on the lobby and restaurant and very little in the rooms. Would have been nice to have the option for larger double occupancy rooms, I.e. 2 queen beds instead of double beds. Overall decent hotel, but didn’t feel like we got the bang for the buck.
