This hotel has been undergoing renovations over a year. We stayed here last year and were disappointed but figured it would be newly remodeled this year. Nope! Still working on it. This should be[More] mentioned in the reservation page. Had we known this, we would have stayed somewhere else. I’m sure it will be nice when finished, but it sure is taking awhile. The cleaning crew needs some training especially in the bathroom/shower.[Less]
