I made 3 room reservations under my name. I called 3 days before arrival and ask for 2 adjoining rooms for kids and other room close by. They couldn’t do any of the requests and we showed up at 3 pm which is 1 hour before specified arrival time. Very dark , old property. Will not stay here again. There are newer, brighter, hotels/lodges with same view in Canal Park.

The hotel was very dated. The furniture was very worn. All the furniture was covered in dust. We put up with everything because the view was exceptional. Didn’t spend much time in the room. Sat on balcony.

Dated and dirty. Room was obviously not thoroughly cleaned before we arrived. Bed sheets barely tucked in and half drunk bottles of water found behind a chair. The dirty band aids and clumps of hair in the pool deck were in the same spot for 3 days. Didn’t have a towel or coffee at the front desk and did not bring them to my room as they said.
