Dump is pretty much pretty accurate. The room was definitely old and shabby and not all that clean. Even tho it's a non smoking room the spreads were both full of cigarette holes. I think smoking in the room would have improved the smell too. Outside there was garbage, sticky stuff (???) everywhere and outside there was piles of linens...

What a dump. This is a horrible hotel and the customer service is awful. Don't ever stay here pitch a tent before you stay here. Everything about this place is horrific. When you notify them there is an issue they will do anything to make sure they don't have to fix it.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our hotel. A lot has changed for the better, but we still have a long day way to go. The hotel was run down for many years and not all of our rooms have been renovated. Pool hours are now from 9am-9pm and the hotel enforces a zero tolerancy...
