The property manager was terrific and the front desk staff was friendly. The room was clean; the value was excellent! We had a 2-bedroom suite, which really helps when travelling with 3 kids. The only unfortunate thing was the a/c is located in the familyroom area. To get the bedrooms (even with the doors open) cool enough to sleep, the person on the sleeper sofa freezes. In fact one room never got cool enough and we had to play musical beds. Ceiling fans in the bedrooms might at least improve that issue. There is only one bathroom, which is suprising with the spaciousness, but at least the vanities outside of the bathroom help alleviate congestion in the morning. We didn't get a chance to use the kayaks/paddle boat, but hope to on a future stay. Looking forward to see how they develop the shoreline/boathouse area. The firepit, loft areas (with computer/pool table/books/games), and pool with waterfall are refreshing. I do think a separate area for exercise with some new equipment would be a huge improvement. The complimentary breakfast was enjoyable overlooking the river.
