Yeah, I know, "resort" brings to mind a specific luxurious images in peoples heads few of which will be satisfied here. The pool and hot tub is nice. They have shuffle board and a restaurant with a bar. Other than that its pretty much an old but clean hotel. If you're used to staying in resorts then go find something... More

I'm not a stranger to staying in lower-end hotels to save money however this was one of the worst I've stayed at in many, many years and not a value for the money. First of all the room smelled, probably due to a carpet that should have been replaced 10 years ago. When we opened out suitcases at home, we... More

This place is simply disgusting. The photos on their site are NOT an accurate representation. The room smelled musty, humid and stale. The carper was so old and dirty I did not walk on it without shoes at all. The shower and tub had mold around, the mattress sagged in the middle and I could hear the coils every time... More

We stayed here for two nights. The grounds are fabulous with wonderful mature plants, two beautiful pools, a jacuzzi and shuffleboard area. The room we stayed in (building 8) was absolutely fine, just a little old and tired. The beds were creaky, the wallpaper old, the furniture scuffed, marked, and old. None of this really affected our enjoyment of San... More

The buildings are old and tired looking. TV was minimal, an old tube set. Our room was quiet and the bed was comfortable. Service was good. If you are on a budget you could do much worse. The front desk was helpful and staff were friendly.

We had a great stay. The room we were supposed to be in originally was given to another customers but then the gentleman upgraded our room with a kitchenette. This is a older property. The carpets were nice. The rooms could use a little touch up with paint. The bathrooms are okay but could use some upgrades as well. Overall... More

I originally booked a weekend here after seeing their great prices and Valentine's package. Then I read the reviews. I have to say that I wasn't expecting much, but it was quite the opposite! Every hotel staff member we encountered was pleasant and most went ABOVE and BEYOND their normal duties to make sure we were happy and satisfied. There... More

Great location and wonderful staff. They really took great care of us. Front desk person was super busy but did a great job al multi tasking. Remote control did not work when we arrived to the room, one call to the front desk and the maintenance person was at our room in less than 5 minutes!
