We were down at the pool while the were pressure washing after 8 p.m. We will stay here again in September when we... More

Cons: the soap they give felt like it was made out of butter because it dissolved after one person using it, one use. Had to... More

When we checked in, Linda was very pleasant and was a pleasure to deal with during our stay. She as well as all the staff were very friendly and always had a smile on their face. The hotel was being remodeled and the construction was no problem at all. We stayed in a room that had been done already. Very... More

Staying here for 12 days with 15 coworkers.Some of have the newly remodeled rooms which are nice,most have the old. However there isn't a price diff between the two.And the old rooms are not the cleanest. Breakfast is a joke, found expired food and gravy with no biscuits etc.
