Remodel underway basically means no breakfast.

The sole reason we booked this hotel was for (a) a decent place to sleep, and (b) an actual breakfast. It's a stop over hotel, and with 2 kids we really wanted a convenient place to just wake up, eat a real breakfast, and go.
Unfortunately (and shame on me) when we booked this hotel we didn't read all the reviews here or notice their single line of text on their website saying the place was being remodeled.
In effect, there is no breakfast. The front office and "eating area" is a small trailer at the front of the property. Breakfast is a terrible 25 cent packaged pastry, an apple, and basically nothing else. No place to sit, etc. Grab a terrible packaged pastry and go is not what the website shows, and not what we were expecting.
The pictures on their site of the nice eating area, with tables, cereal, waffle makers, juices, and all the other breakfast stuff simply does not exist right now.
Half the reason we booked there simply did not exist, and we then had to go out, find a place to eat, and buy breakfast for 4 people. Kind of defeated the whole purpose of booking this hotel. Half the amenities we were looking for were gone, but the price is still full price.
Booker be warned; what you see in the pictures simply does not exist right now due to remodel. I will likely be disputing the charge with my credit card company as the services they present simply did not exist. less
