This is a great Hotel the receptionist people were excellent. The room they provide us were very clean and the attention house keeping gave us were not compared with other other hotels. I personally recommend this Hotel because the room where I stayed were very clean and the parking was very secure. This Hotel was great and the most important... More

The people at the hotel made our experience what it was. My husband and I drove all night to be at a car convention. Check in time was 3pm. My husband explained our extreme lack of sleep, they said sorry our room was not ready (it was only 10:45am) but we could change and lay by the pool while they... More

Found this hotel online and I' m very happy I did. The staff was very pleasant and helpful, especially Rod at the front desk. The things that are important to me when I travel are cleanliness, security, quiet and location. My room had new carpet and was very clean, key entry to the complex in the evening gave peace of...

I can't believe all the good reviews and pictures on this hotel, when we passed in mid-july the fountain was merely a bassin of dirty water, with no fountain, where fishes looked like they were dying in that dirty. Area is sketchy, complicated to get to the room if you arrive late (they will explain you need to find a... More

This place was ok a few years ago when we went, but it's gone downhill fast. The grounds are nice, lots of beautiful trees and plants and a fish pond. That's where it stops being nice. The room was NOT ready at 3PM as promised, and to that I was told "Check in STARTS at 3 but a room isn't... More

My children and I stayed for 4 days. The staff was very polite, the room was clean and the price was right. The pool was clean as was the courtyard. The location was great plenty of nearby restaurants and only 15-20 minutes to any beach. Will definitely return.

We stayed here on vacation. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was decent. Cereal, fruit and frozen waffles/pancakes. The staff was fantastic and with all the rooms they have, when you call for extra towels you get them very quickly. We got a screaming deal $$ for this hotel but I would pay regular price... More

The grounds are beautiful. Rooms are upgraded, extremely clean. The "TEAM" are all so friendly & helpful. Each person works so hard yet all greet you with a smile, from the Manager's to the Housekeepers to the Maintence. At night the best Security is in place. You can pay more but you will NOT find a better place.

This property is a bit beyond it's prime, but is still very conveniently located and clean. The large pool area (with hot tub) is great for kids and the rooms have areas for food preparation. The daily breakfast room is clean and the continental breakfast has a fair selection of items. There are restaurants/fast food locations nearby and a quarter... More

To start this place is in a horrible neighborhood. They lock their gates at 10pm. And have a special gate key to get to the area where the rooms are. There were people in the lobby that smelled, it was disgusting if I could have canceled upon check-in I would have. The room was small. Not clean and the bathroom... More
