It might not be the fancy hotel with the hot tub and room parties going on, but it can still do the job without the bells and whistles. Your just going to be sleeping, dressing, and bathing there. Maybe they have new staff? New renovations? Maybe the people had bad experiences that have been resolved since? To be honest I take online reviews with a grain of salt, I've eaten or stayed at places that one person says is a detestable cesspool but me and my friends had a wonderful experience at.
Try to reserve your judgement until you spend time at the hotel.

Last A-Cen Boyfriend booked the hotel reservations too late and we couldn't get into the hotel across from the convention center like the year prior. The hotel we got was not this big fancy hotel but it had free hot breakfast and an indoor pool as well as free-wifi and it was clean. It also had a free shuttle back and forth. It was about 80 cheaper I believe. Honestly we really enjoyed it even if it wasn't as swanky looking.
