Nice hotel, but over run by kids.
Posted Nov 14, 2016
My wife and I stayed in a King Suite while visiting our daughter at St. Mary's College. We were also travelling with our dog and chose this hotel because of the positive reviews from travelers with pets. The hotel and the room were nice, but I'm sorry to say the hotel was completely over run by kids under 12 who were there for a hockey tournament at Notre Dame. I have kids too and usually have them with us when we travel. So I'm writing this from a perspective of a parent. The kids were playing in the stair wells, running around the exterior of the hotel, running up and down the hallways. The pool and hot tub were completely overwhelmed, the breakfast area was a zoo. Never seen anything quite like it before. Ok enough about that...
The king suite was a nice size room with a seating area and then a king bed. The 42" tv swiveled so it could be seen from anywhere in the room. There is a mini fridge and microwave along with 3 drawer dresser. The rooms seem to have been recently updated and were clean. The continental breakfast was just average. The internet service was free, but was very slow. We just used our cell phone data for the whole weekend. For those who travel with pets, this was an above average hotel for them. Ample grassy area behind the hotel and along one side. Also have a separate can for pet waste in that area. On the bad side, the hotel backs up to a Menards warehouse where they load and store lumber. Lots of noise from trucks and employees there.
