I had a single king sized bed. The TV is decent size and the channel selections are decent. The room includes a small fridge, microwave, and coffee maker (I prefer tea, so I used the microwave for that).

We stayed 2 nights visiting family in the area. The hotel had a nice breakfast, nice beds, & rooms were spacious. We used the pool one afternoon, but my kids kept complaining about all the dirt, hair, & mold (around the ladder) they could see with their goggles. The staff was friendly enough and seemed to be everywhere. The halls... More

The workers were very sweet. But the hotel is not very nice. The rooms are small, and we had a suite, the floor in the hall was falling through. The breakfast was horrible. The room stink like they got wet, I think they need to update the hotel. The price was a little high for the quality!
