I would just go across the st to the Hampton
Furniture in the room had scratches on the surfaces, the coffee table had different color nail polish marks all over it.The moment my husband and I laid down in the bed, it squeaked extremely loud, and any time we would roll over or move in it, almost as if kids had jumped in it so much, they had broke it and no one had bothered to fix it. We had a large group in town for a marine corp reunion, so we asked about renting the conference room so we could have a place to gather instead of crowding into a hotel room and we were told the rent times were only 4 hour increments either in the morning or at night, only for 4 hours and only until 10pm for $100, which did not work for us. We also asked for our rooms to be next to each other, which we were told that could definitely be done, and all they did was put us on the same floor. Also, to use the pool, you have to call and book over the phone, which doesn’t say anywhere on this app. I will say, the room was at least clean.

Rude management
Water was off in the hotel and tbe manager Becca was indifferent and kinda rude. No apologies for my inconvenience and a refusal to comp the room. They offered 1,000 points on my Choice Hotels account which is a joke. Do not stay here b/c the management staff is rude and unprofessional. should not promote this property as the entire front desk staff acted as though it was my fault the water lines were inturrupted.

The price was right but I was very unimpressed with the breakfast (or what it was, packaged sweets, coffee, yogurt, cheese sticks, no orange juice, no prepackaged hot breakfast sandwiches). The staff was "meh". The nicest person was the woman who checked me out in the morning, the other's had no personality. My key also stopped working before I checked out in the morning. HOUSEKEEPING STAFF WAS LOVELY!!!
