My elderly wheelchair bound mother and aunt stayed at Lowes 07.15-07.21 and you should be aware of the following issues. My mother's room only had one hand bar in the bathroom but my aunts had 2. I am wondering if the handicap rooms are ADA compliant? We requested the front desk to change the room three times and it was... More

Stayed here with my fiance for our five-year anniversary. We had a really great view with a patio and the room was also amazing. Only hold-up was that the room wasn't ready for our 4 pm check-in. The staff was very apologetic and gave us a $100 voucher to spend towards food/drinks/services at the hotel...room was ready 10 minutes later!!... More

This hotel has a great location, but you pay for it! It is an average hotel with an above average price tag. Considering I was paying $700 a night, I would have expected more luxury. For example, the hotel offers express checkout, but when I went down to use it, it was not working! And this was at 11:30 am... More

If you want to relax on the pool deck or the dining lounge arrive early space is limited.A short 15 minute walk to the... More

This was our 2nd stay at this hotel the first being nearly 10 years ago - I want to love it, but 10 years later, it disappointed, as it did the first time. The location is fantastic. And the staff, for the most part is good and trying to offer high quality service. But the rooms are so basic it's... More
