It is a really nice place. I enjoyed having everything right there. We stayed Pool side and the restaurant was right next door, club and just a really nice facility. It had a really good continental breakfast.

Trip was for business and it was good. Free Wi-fi was a big plus. Our group had several receptions in the back room and food and drink was good, but nothing fancy. Karaoke turned out to be a lot of fun.

Clean hotel with large rooms, great restaurant, and pool. Our son loved the pool and water slide. Only complaint is if you stay near the lounge area the music is VERY loud till past 2 am on Friday's and Saturday's.

My cousins were hosting a 90th birthday party for their mother. There were four generations staying there over a long weekend. We used common areas near the pool to hang out in the evenings, the luncheon for my aunt was lovely, the service was spot-on. The best part was just the relaxed and accommodating attitudes of the staff and the... More

We went to a dog show & loved our room!!!! Staff accommodated us without any difficulties and and were very pleasant to work with. I highly recommend this place to stay. We weren't able to eat breakfast because we had to leave early, but it was offered 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.
