The staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast is good and varied. The manager is efficient for she gave us another room right away when we informed her that there may be bedbugs in our room ( in the sofa & carpet) and the smell of roaches in the kitchen cabinets. We got free red rashes and my kids had to take allergy medz and use off spray inside the room. I expected more from this hotel because of its positive reviews and that it cost a bit more. The 2nd room is more clean but we are still itchy after we moved, not sure if it is due to the 1st or 2nd room. The pool is nice and warm but there are some floating insects that are washed away down the drain with my kids splashing.The location is not so far from major attractions, so that is a positive.
