The sister hotel is where we normally stay, but it was full. I would not stay here again. It is Outdated, slow elevator, and lots of commotion outside. It was decently cleaned. We didn't visit the pool, so do not know about it.

The rooms have been updated some over the last year. It is always clean and the staff friendly. I like that is larger then the standard room of other hotels and the space is great with two growing boys. The pool is clean and a provides a great swim.
