          Stayed 2 nights. They forgot to make up the room after the first night. Breakfast was adequate but the one waitress on duty seemed overwhelmed. Bed was comfortable, room was clean, room facilities were fine.

          My husband and I are staying at this hotel next month and are concerned (based on the review so far) about this being the best choice for our family with two young children. What are the best rooms for a family that are quiet, clean, & spacious? It sounds like the hotel is really run down and dirty (smells like ciggy smoke, and noisy all hours of the night?!). Thank you for any help you can provide!
