I was charged for an extra night. I canceled a night stay in a timely manner and I was told that i will not be charged. At the check out I noticed the extra charge and i waited for a while for them to fix the problem after they apologized for the mistake. No big deal, right? Well, actually I... More

This hotel has a great staff who greets you and make you feel nice. You can tell they are hard workers! The breakfast is awesome, much better than we expected. They have scrambled eggs, all types of bread and hot breakfast. Now the room is another story, it stinks, the carpets are super nasty and the lamps seems that they... More

We stayed here during Memorial day weekend. It just so happened to be bike week also!!! And to top it off a motorcycle group was staying at our hotel. Despite all of this the staff was EXCELLENT. Our room wasn't what we had reserved so they upgraded our room to a jacuzzi suite. The rooms were dated but the great... More

Everyone is soooo nice! The free breakfast is wonderful and has a lot of choices in what to eat, not just toast and cereal like most free breakfasts. The rooms are great, they are large and roomy with kitchenette and a kitchen table in their own kitchen area. We love staying at this hotel. Regrets? Just that I don't get... More

It had been 3 years since I last did a review for this hotel. They have been very busy updating the rooms, bathrooms, facilities, etc-even adding a gift shop with foods, etc right next to the pools! The number of guests that come down to spend winter months there (Winter Texans) at THIS hotel is amazing. They are treated like... More

Rooms are large which is nice for an extended stay. We had plenty of dresser/closet space for a party of 3 adults plus did not feel cramped. Coming from northern US, we appreciated the chance to sit outside on the balcony without having to leave our room. The complimentary breakfast gave us the choice of eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits &... More

This place is clean, reasonably priced, a great staff and just a delightful place to stay. The rooms are updated but the facility is somewhat old. The breakfast is hot and predictable. The surroundings are welcoming. I met my family down here for a New Year's Eve bash and just had the best time in these accommodations. We watched football... More

Ooohh, It looks lovely from all the pictures. The staff on the front desk were very professional BUT it seemed to me that the owners were living in 'la la land' and the staff were trying their best to front this business. We met a lovely lady at front of desk - we had an issue with our key fob... More

I'll start with the good part. The staff is very accommodating for the most part and very helpful. The rate is reasonable for the area. I stayed in the Jacuzzi room which they gave me as a free upgrade. The location is close to the action and near the bridge. There are many food choices within walking distance. Now... The... More

Our Organization has an event that brings in 1000+ people twice a year ( April & October ) and we use this property as a Host Hotel. We occupy all rooms in the hotel for our customers and I'm delighted to see the staff handle our BIG group well. The rooms are very spacious and the air conditioners operate very... More
