If it wasn't for the fact that the view was peaceful, we would have packed our bags and left the first day. The sheets were so wore out that you could see through them. The pillows were made out of fiberfill foam that disintegrated by the third day. The HVAC unit in our room was so loud that it kept me up all night.
Although this motel had some nice amenities, I think the word resort is overreaching. Do yourself a favor and skip eating at periscopes which is the restaurant that is attached the resort.
