Exceptional10.0
Comfortable and convenient
This was a great stop on my way through PA. The bed was big and comfortable. I almost slept through breakfast! There was a nice variety of options for breakfast, hot and cold -- the eggs were fluffy, and the fruit was fresh. The staff was polite and helpful, and the hotel was convenient to local shopping and Starbucks before I got back on the road.

A little less of the norm.
Poolside room = room near the pumps for the pool with the constant running of pumps. Don't take your kids to breakfastat the hotel unless you want them to hear the f word numerous times. They were playing ozzy's boneyard on xm radio for breakfast.

Pretty good stay.
Loud people upstairs at 10:30 at night, running and jumping. 1 call to front desk and it stopped.

One night stay MORE than enough.
I was a bit disturbed by the unprofessionalism when you first enter the lobby. Staff standing at the front desk on their cellphones chatting amongst themselves as we walked in. The general appearance of the staff was also a bit much, would have expected some kind of dress code other than being greeted by a nice enough young woman wearing a skull printed dress and multiple facial piercings, not what I expected. Service was decent, The exterior and interior was very dated and in need of cleaning and repairs. I also did not like the fact that you could hear everyone walking past our room, some good sound-proofing would be an added benefit. Overall the stay was nice, not what I had expected for the higher price I paid for the room. The breakfast in the morning was adequate for myself and my husband as we are not big breakfast people, but if you are looking for a large selection I recommend going out for breakfast.

Overnight stay while traveling
The Hotel is a very nice facility. I do have 2 major complaints though. The air conditioning in our room on the 2nd floor did not cool our room very well. We even changed rooms and it was the same thing. It eventually cooled down a bit but took hours. My other complaint is no elevators. It is a very large place and did require a lot of walking. For someone like myself with health issues, it became quite a chore to get around. The breakfast in the morning was very good and the staff everywhere was very accommodating.
