First, you can't beat the price. I got a great deal through one of those "book it" websites during a "3rd night free" promotion! Traveling out of season probably helped, too.
The daily continental breakfast included: hard-boiled eggs, bagels, white bread, English muffins, corn flake cereal, fruit loop cereal, apple juice, whole or 2% milk (only whole left by Mon), peach or strawberry yogurt (only peach left by Mon), waffles, and a "surprise" breakfast option that differed every day. For us, we had biscuits with sausage gravy on Sat morning, oatmeal on Sun morning, and sausage patties and "folded" eggs (like on a McD's breakfast sandwich) on Mon morning. It seemed odd not to have scrambled eggs every day, but the most unusual thing was that there was no fruit. I would have enjoyed a healthy side with my heavy carb-loaded breakfast items.
This time of year the hotel was not very full, so we had the outdoor hot tub to ourselves several times throughout the weekend.
Each day, my partner and I woke up with a new ache or pain from the pillows! Shoulder, neck, back pain. Who would think you could experience so much discomfort from bad pillows?!
Our tub had no kind of non-slip grip in place. My first shower there, I stepped in with my right foot and slipped, slamming my left shin into the side of the tub. It could have been worse, but I only suffered a bruise. I did make a suggestion to the hotel about it since I was staying in a room that is supposedly ADA-compliant.
All in all, I would DEFINITELY return. Nice rooms with fridge and microwave, indoor pool and an outdoor pool and spa, great price, friendly service. Recommend!
