Our room was clean. The hotel is near shopping and restaurants. The hot tub was a nice touch at night with the cool temperatures. I wasn't fond of the coffee but there is a Starbucks right across the street. Overall, we enjoyed our stay!

I think it's included in the room but you are best to check with the hotel to be sure. It's a fairly basic buffet breakfast.

Not sure about pool hours. Im pretty sure its open into the evening. The breakfast was nothing to write home about. However, there are eateries all around the hotel.
