I am happy to report that this place is not as bad as all the reviews on the web make it out to be (I almost brought sheets and shower shoes). However-there is evidence that it probably once was. There seems to be a number of quick fixes. It is a bit over priced for a place that has the trimmings of a hotel but in the end is really just a 'fancy motel'. There wasn't a hair dryer.
Some small stains on the carpet in hallway,dusty lampshades,some amateur patchwork,a loose hook here,a torn desk chair there...these were acceptable issues. They don't seem to care too much for details.The front desk staff though (Jonathan and a young lady w/dark hair) were friendly.
The confirmation page I printed described my room as having a mini fridge and microwave but it didn't. Not a big deal to me but I would dbl check if these amenities are important to you.
The room was clean...enough...looked like housekeeping (and maintenance to be honest) does the bare minimum. The a/c worked. The window was nailed shut. The bathroom was just okay. The tub was cleaner than the shower curtain-- eeew to the dark spots on mine-especially b/c this is one of the easiest/cheapest/grossest things to remedy. I've also seen better shower-heads at campsites.....just saying.
The pool area is cozy. Lounge chairs are plain. It's pretty at night. Warm water-6ft at deepest.The continental breakfast was just okay. There were options like bananas,toast,cereal,and o.j--enough to have a good start to the morning. The "scrambled" "eggs" tasted like they came out of a spray-can.The attendant woman was sweet. There aren't a lot of tables-its a small dining space.
