    I will be saying here tomorrow night and I need hi-speed wi-fi, that's why I went with this hotel. From the reviews I'm reading, I'm going to have to pay extra for better internet service over the other? Wow! You offer FREE Wi-Fi but it's SLOW? I'm honestly reconsidering my stay at this facility.
