The pros were that they were upgrading the hotel since the last few times I have spent there but what really was bad, upon check in the guy at the front desk gave us the wrong room (we asked for King and got Queen) he said cause it was a last minute booking and he thought we would need more room. We booked the room a week in advance and it was just me and the hubs. Then he said they had no other rooms to move us into. Then came breakfast and I understand the COVID situation but we went down at 8:30am to the only food left was 2 individually wrapped cinnamon bagels, no fruit, no water, no juice no other choices. So after paying $125 per night it was very disappointing and the room stank of old wet lettuce and there was a fruit chew still on the floor under the TV unit. They also put a note under the door that rooms would not be cleaned on the weekends, fair enough but we stayed Monday and Tuesday night and never got it cleaned. Just not a pleasant stay at all and you would think being moving weekend for the college kids you would step up the game and make sure things are nice so when parents come to stay they want to rebook. But I will add, all the other hotels we stayed in from TX to OH had grab bags for breakfast which included a muffin, fruit, granola bar and a drink which is why I complained so much on this breakfast being really bad.

Poor 2.0
Expedia and the hotel accepted a booking 48 hours in advance of the stay. Upon arrival we found a note on the door stating that the hotel was under renovation and our reservation had been moved to another hotel. Classic bait and switch.

Overall a nice stay. The hotel was clean and quiet. The pool has been reopened. Parking is limited due to the construction. My only complaints are there is no place to charge your phone next to the bed and housekeeping knocked on my door at 930am when check out wasn't until 11. had to unplug the alarm clock. Outlets on the night stand or the bedside table would be nice. I would return.
