The microwave had a button missing, the tv was a dinosaur version that didnt even give a clear picture. There were bugs and ants in the room. The room next to us had over a hundred... More

I loved the set up of our room. We had the queen sweet with the hot tub. The only complaints I have are about the service. Our room was supposed to come with a microwave, so to save money we brought a few microwavable foods, but the room didn't have one in it. My husband went to the service desk... More

Front desk guy had attitude. Not very friendly! Some mold on tub. Bathroom door lock broke. A/C filters completely filled, and had to clean. Overall, we've been in worse places before. This the second time staying here. Rates are pretty good.

Well, the first thing we noticed upon arrival was the very loud music from the Elvis museum next door and the indoor upholstered furniture on the outside balconies/hallways. Upon entering the room we realized that we had not received a non-smoking room as requested, drawers were missing from the furniture,carpet was coming up and our mattress was sitting on 2... More

As soon as we got there we had problems at check in even though we made reservations in advance. the owner/manager was a very rude grumpy man but the girl that helped us was great. we did get the jaccuzi we asked for besides that there is nothing good about the stay we had.
