The staff, the establishment was very good. However , we had asked for a non smoking room. ..Which we received. However. Smoke was in the hallway and coming in through the door. Smokers should have their own wing or end of the hall way or something. I was very disappointed to say the least. On checking out we had spoke... More

Good value. Our room was average but clean. Bathroom was a bit small. The pool/waterslide is why we chose this hotel and it was well worth it. The hottub was warm to hot....but not hot....which is fine. The kids LOVED the waterslide. Their review "it is fast and there aren't those bumps at the seams that hurt your back". They... More

Thank you for completing a review on your most recent stay at our hotel. We are so happy the family enjoyed the pool area; you certainly can have hours of fun in there. Our maintenance goes inside the slide to ensure there are no issues inside the slide, glad you noticed. Glad you were able to find our location easily... More

From the moment we arrived we received friendly , knowledgable service. Loved the lemon water each evening ! Pool and hot tub were clean and inviting. Availability of fridge and microwave, coffee and safe in our room made our stay more convenient.i would return in a flash!

Thank you for your Super comments. I am glad that you received top notch service from our knowledgeable staff. The lemon water is a hit with our entire guest, we change from lemon water to lime, lemonade and ice tea so there always is a surprise. Our staff works hard to maintain clean pool area for our guest. Fridge and... More

I am very sorry that you felt you had poor service at our hotel. I have looked into your reservation this was booked online in a smoking room for two nights. When you arrived we were unable to change you to a nonsmoking room as we were sold out, however we were able to make your second night in a... More

The only thing I didn't like about the hotel was I was stuck with a smoking room. I didn't think these things existed still! I had a hard time sleeping as the smell of cigarette smoke was overwhelming. I asked to have a non-smoking room but there were non left when I checked in. I would not stay there again... More

Thank you for taking the time to fill out a comment card. I am sorry we didn’t have any non-smoking rooms left, we have been very busy. We do have only 6 smoking rooms in the hotel out of 50. Local by laws are that you are permitted to smoke in your home. When you rent a hotel room this... More
