Took alot of photos. We had a riverside room. Be careful stepping out of the tub/shower. It's was a longer drop than... More

This place is quality especially for the price. My family stayed a few days while we were on Spring Break. You just can't beat the price for what you get. They are very helpful and will get anything you need.
