We spent the weekend at Doolan’s. It was mostly a nice getaway.
The good points included the price, the cleanliness, the lack of a minimum, the yummy hot free breakfast, the very sweet & accommodating staff, the pool & ample free parking. The bad points included the age of the property which even the renovations can’t hide, the pool is locked at 6 pm, the bed was rock hard, the room was kind of dark & the only mirror was in the bathroom.
They have funky locks & key cards with a series of patterned holes. They kind of look like dominos. Our lock had been re-programmed incorrectly before I arrived so somebody had to let me in with a master key & then program the thing correctly. We had no problems after that. The room was clean & did not have a smell. The refrigerator wasn’t all that cold. My biggest complaint was how hard the king sized mattress was. The place has fantastic water pressure so even though the bathroom is old, the shower still felt great.
The lobby bar appears to be the happening place to go for the senior set. By 4:30 – 5:00 pm the dance floor was packed. It was really sweet to see the couples having a great time.
If you can make it, get up for breakfast which is complimentary & served from 8 a. to 10 am. You get a buffet of scrambled eggs, toast, home fries, bacon & sausage. Plus there are two kinds of cereal, fruit, bagels & donuts. There were also several kinds of juices, tea & coffee.
