First things first, this isn't a resort, it's a hotel. They can call it whatever they want, but going in know this is a hotel a bit above your typical Holiday inn.
The room was nice - we stayed in a studio - big bed, wet bar, small bathroom. Wish the bathroom was a little bigger, but can't complain.
Have two complaints - the maid service never could seem to work at what I would call "normal hours." In most hotels, the maids are usually in and out between about 11 and 3. Only once during the week did they come before 3, and most visits happened around 4 or 5. This was during our midday breaks, so we only ended up getting fresh towels once.
The other complaint was that the wifi service went down for most of the week and the desk mostly blew it off. I called to ask after it was down for the second day and they said that it was being switched over from a password protected network to an open network and didn't know when or if it would be fixed during our stay (it wasn't). I don't need wifi, but if you are charging a resort fee for little other reason than for parking and wifi, it seems lousy to have half of that reason lost.
We did not eat at the restaurant or bar, but the breakfast looked like what you would expect. It was not a part of our package and cost about ten dollars, which seemed a bit steep for some hotel pan eggs and bacon.
