I came for a convention. Parking was easy. However it was stated that parking was $10 for the event parking. It was $25. The elevators were slow and it wasn't clear that you needed to insert your room key to make it go. Overall cleanliness was okay, but not great. Room was nice and seemed clean. The door was difficult to open, sounded like the wood was breaking trying to open or close it.

For what you pay to stay here the value is not comparable. Lighting is horrible and way to dark, many light bulbs were out, peeling wallpaper, ratty carpets in rooms and hallways, beds so uncomfortable and not enough pillows for each bed. They have one per person, light switches that go to nothing and not enough outlets. As I spend time in the hotel I also noticed dust collecting on surfaces through the hotel especially when you are riding escalators it is visible. All public restroom stalls need surfaces wiped downs and repairs to broken and unsightly trim work, latches, and other casework. Leaking ceiling in restaurant, visibly worn furniture, and overall everywhere you go something was broken and needed to be fixed or maintained. I wanted to leave but I was there with a group. Very high security deposits on rooms as well. The arcade was nice but half the pinball machine were out of service. The quick restaurant was ok but a sit down would be nice

I liked the pet accommodations. It is nice that they provide accommodations so we can bring our furry family members along on vacation. Even though the Showboat provided all pet amenities ie: pet area, bags and disposal receptacles, patrons did not clean up after themselves. The only thing I missed was the mini microwave in the room. Fridge was available. But no microwave. Had to order more food because we had no way to heat up the food we brought with us.
