My first impressions ruined the entire stay. While checking in, the front desk agent asked me to pay an additional $10 for use of the pool, mini-golf and wi-fi services. This caught me completely off guard because this additional fee was never mentioned during my reservation. I would have easily paid the extra $10 when I was booking my reservation,...

I loved my room but the tub was a little dirty when we got there. When we were told they had Continental breakfast we was expecting a hot breakfast but that's not what we got! This was the only thing I wasn't happy with. Cereal isn't breakfast for an adult. But I would stay again

The room was spacious and clean. Furniture, carpets, bathroom, decor, appliances, etc. are all in good upkeep. Overall feels fairly new and well kept. Toilet seat was sliding all over the toilet, though. Our room had a large balcony, which was very nice. Not all rooms have that, though. No tobacco smell. AC (large individual in-room through-the-wall unit) was fairly...

Stayed here for 7 days and found the hotel well worth the money. Room was clean and comfortable. Great view of the training horse track. Food at the Sports Grill was good but it closed at 8PM weekdays and 10PM on Friday and Saturday. I definitely would stay there again.

We recently stayed at Stadium Hotel for about one month and we enjoyed the gorgeous views looking out of our balcony to the south east, the breakfast and the renovated lobby.

I have stayed at this hotel in the past. This time was a little different. The outside of hotel has fresh paint. The hotel lobby has been remodeled and it looks GREAT!!!!!!!!!! The hotel over-all is clean and decent. The bed was pretty hard. This hotel (in the past) had a full breakfast but now the breakfast very very unappealing....

Hotel staff - kind and friendly. Nice, safe parking. Close to turnpike - easy access Noisy - Turnpike is very loud to listen to at night. Breakfast - don't bother, unless you like sugary/greasy cereal & muffins Shower ran all night - noisy didn't turn off. Bed - broken & noisy. Felt like I was falling out of the bed.
