My family and I stayed here from Thursday-Saturday morning 4th of July weekend. Check in was fine, the front desk gave us a map & breakfast tickets. After bringing our baggage in we were headed over to the restaurant and a security guard was walking through with full armed gear on, that's when things got weird. Shady people peaking out... More

The hotel its self is in need of some up keep. However, we have really enjoyed our two stays with this hotel. The staff have been fantastic. The breakfast is phenomenal which turns into an Italian restaurant after breakfast hours. The pool area is amazing. Yes, the area needs some extra TLC but the price is well worth all you... More

I was very impressed with their pool areas. One perfect for the little ones. Just like a splash zone with little slides, a pirate ship and great area for the parents to sit and watch. Their regular pool is amazing. Big, lots of siting space, great music playing and a bar/lobby near by. You can drink as long as its... More

If this hotel's staff and amenities were placed in a modern, renovated facility I would give it more stars - the staff here is STELLAR! Professional, kind, accommodating, and good at their jobs. The two pool areas - a huge, beautiful main pool and a big kids' splash playground area - are beautiful and secluded within the facility in a... More

This hotel is average. Rooms were outdated. Steps to get to second floor were rusted thru. Breakfast is included but they do not mention that it only includes 2 of the guest. What is the point of asking me how many in my room and the ages if you don't mention at check in they can't have breakfast? We took... More

The only reason I chose this hotel was the pool. As I have a 3 year old and 15 month old twins I liked the fact that they have heated pool and a big kiddy pool. But that was all. I asked for 2 cribs and when I checked in the lady told me to check in the room first... More

I'm reading all the negative reviews and honestly I can't seem to agree.When I arrived right away they changed my room to ground floor because of my disabled fiance so kudos.I absolutely loved how close it is to the shopping area despite the hot air.The breakfast was the same every morning but it was enjoyable and kept us fed.Last but...

Jenae S I'm very sorry to hear about your experience here. It is a horrible inconvenience when bed bugs are brought in from other facilities however we have purchased a brand new top of the line Bug killer that is guaranteed to eliminate the problem once it has been brought to our attention.

I was greeted very kindly by the staff and check in and out was great amd breakfast was good. But when I came to the room it was in a location with weekly renters, the room was like trying to change a raisin back into a grape. The ceiling was patched numerous times, the bathroom was needing a complete blow... More
