Have to say contrary to other reviewers, we highly advise not to chose this motel under any circumstances as our stay in Dec 2012 was littered with numerous problems from (a) the point of check in, which took almost 1/2 hour due to under-staffing to (b) our room having to be changed due to multiple maintenance issues not immediately solvable by evening staff to (c) Izzy (the Mgr/GM) causing us to be very nearly late for our cruise due to poor shuttle scheduling on his part - we had even pre-arranged a specific shuttle departure time in advance and still ended up leaving over an hour late that time. We even experienced (d) a very poor experience at the onsite restaurant (see separate review).
Yes, we did speak to staff & management numerous times during our one night stay. The evening staff at the desk was very efficient in getting us a different room when the original was not satisfactory but all other contact with management did not resolve anything and at times was actually quite patronizing.
As Diamond Level Choice Privileges members we travel extensively and are more then satisfied with the many levels of Choice Hotel Properties, and it is because of that affiliation we chose this property, however once in a while we make a poor choice and this was ours for 2012.
Best advise, stay elsewhere.
