Service was great. Check in was very slow but there was a lot going on at the time. The hotel got hit fast and the staff handled it perfect. Pool and hot tub needed cleaning though.

It's clean and the staff is nice but the a/c in the room sounded like a jet engine, the sink was plugged and the front desk never did get my name right.

We were only there for one night but we were very happy with the accommodations. Nice clean rooms, comfy beds and enough pillows to build a fort! I love that the fridge and microwave are the standard. Thank you. Next time I would request a room on the top floor so we can avoid hearing so many sounds above us.

We stayed during a blizzard and the staff was thoughtful and patient. The kids had a blast on the huge water slide. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful.

There was inadequate staff at the front desk when we all checked in at the same time, despite knowing there was a team arriving together. The rooms were ok, but the fan vent in the bathroom... More

Thank you for your most recent review. I am very sorry that you had a few issues. Our staff reflects our 50 room facility; therefore 1 front desk agent is normally adequate. Not all teams show up at the same time if we were aware of this we would have tried to add another agent on. I have had maintenance... More
