"I was very disapointed that the pool was closed ...Before booking this hotel 2 days before our stay I specifically asked if the pool was in working order and I was lied to! Front desk didnt even know how to explain the problem of why the pool was closed. The least she could have done was to refund some of our money back."

"rip off!!"
"I was frustrated that the pool and area were closed for renovations. There was no notification of this in advance. I asked for a reduced rate and was told $130 is the reduced rate. I find this very hard to believe as this was the amount I paid in previous visit to the hotel. Also, the complimentary breakfast was only offered until 9:30 on a Sunday so I had to rush to grab something before it was put away."
