3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Overall experience was good. Just a few minor things that hotel could work on. Our room had issue with the shower. Nice large pool, Comfortable and clean rooms. Nice breakfast, but get there early, seating is limited but food overall is good with lots of options. Staff was nice when approached, but wouldn't speak unless spoken to.

Our first room smelled like smoke so they gave us another room. The next room was not much of an improvement. There was a piece of freshly chewed gum on the rug and the floor and rug were dirty. The furniture and room were outdated and the beds were extremely uncomfortable. The next morning when we went down for breakfast,... More

The room was good; except for the carpet that was fraying into the bathroom area. Since my last stay they have added refrigerators and microwaves in the rooms. They offer a free breakfast that will fill your needs for getting started in the morning and there are a number of restaurants close by for lunch and dinner and a supermarket... More

The staff were friendly, but the hotel was in need of repair. Knobs on the shower/tub were loose and ready to fall off. There was hair on the white sheet cover, house keeping was not on top of it. Last night no shampoo, 2nd night only 2 lotion bottles. I saw one was lotion so I grabbed the other thinking... More

When we arrived in the room, it smelled like mildew and mold coming from the air conditioner. We immediately told the front desk and they gave us another room. It still smelled like mildew and mold, plus stale cigarettes. My sinuses went crazy. The carpet was very old and nasty/dirty. The Hotel/room was very old and needed to be redone.One... More

The outside definitely needs upgrading. The rooms are fine but the outside needs a face lift. The pool is nice and the staff was friendly. Too bad they don't bother to upgrade and add a little TLC to the building!

This hotel is an average hotel. But what sets this hotel apart is the friendly staff. The staff was so great especially the woman in the breakfast room. She was energetic and fun. When I go back I would stay here again. Only thing I would suggest and would raise the prices is that this hotel needs a remodel. The... More

I wasn't sure about the hotel from the outside if we really wanted to stay or look elsewhere as it seemed sort of ordinary looking, but once you got into the court yard and saw the inviting pool, you definitely wanted to be there! Our room was over looking the pool on the bottom floor. Very comfortable room and highly... More
