    The toilet kept breaking in our room, and wouldn't flush properly. The staff promptly came and fixed it but then the next flush it broke again. Although the staff was very kind and apologetic, it was very annoying to have someone constantly coming in your room to fix stuff.

    We were next door to loud obnoxious people. We were promptly moved.

    The hallways and elevator were dirty. The hot tub was tiny. Asked for ectra towels we got pool towels.

    Superb

    Rooms were clean and comfortable, complimentary breakfast, location (close to fairgrounds), price

    It's a formula hotel, so no real charm.

    It's in a good location.

    The heater in our room did not work properly. It just blew cold air. I told the staff and they came up and got it working. However it got too hot in our room so we shut it off. I tried turning it back on and it would not turn back on!

    This location is close to the fairgrounds where I need to be

    Toilet didn't flush and was plugged up. After waiting for thirty minutes I went back to the front desk and got a plunger and worked on it myself. So toilet could not have been cleaned from the time before. Breakfast not good. Room the size of a postage stamp

    Good comfortable bed

    Could use a facelift. Breakfast bar was disappointing. Key card only good for 24 hr. Had to get it reflashed every day.

    Exceptional

    Staff upon checkout added choice rewards to my account upon request. Liked the 3rd party rate. Pool was warm n it didn't feel freezing when going in from the hot tub.

    No ironing board n iron in room. Room seemed small n i thought we'd have a micro fridge n microwave, but we really didn't need it. But for a great nice rest it was sufficient.
