    Noisy guests, beds sucks (slanted to the middle), bad pillows, guests were smoking in their rooms, dirty, and the management was very unhelpful/unfriendly after reporting loud guests partying in the hallway at 3am. Stay clear of this one! Wow, it was bad.

    Parking is free if you are a hotel guest. There is a LARGE lot. I don't know where the arena is.

    There is no hot tub. The pool is a decent sized standard hotel pool. I would guess that it was originally outdoors, but was enclosed several years ago.
