We stayed two nights at this hotel during a very busy weekend. It was comfortable, and we were pleased with the staff's efforts to shuffle rooms on a fully-booked weekend so that we could stay in the same room both nights. The hotel itself is fine--generally clean with an adequate free breakfast. The pool is terribly small, but it is nice that there is also a kiddie pool for those with small children, plus a hot tub and small sauna.
We were disappointed with housekeeping, however. Our room was not serviced until almost 4 p.m., and when the maid did finally come, she very obviously wanted us to say that we didn't need anything from her. She was clearly reluctant to do her work and suggested that we could do without housekeeping. When we made it clear that we DID want housekeeping services, having used all our towels, etc., much earlier in the day, she did service our room. However, it was clearly a quick job, as she didn't check the coffee area, etc., leaving out dirty cups and pot, forgetting to restock the coffee, and also neglecting to restock the water glasses and such in the bathroom.
Also regarding housekeeping in general, there were only 2 small towels left in the pool area when we were there in the afternoon, the edges of carpets are dusty, and breakfast garbage cans were overflowing. Maybe this weekend was just too busy for them to do their usual job.
So overall, an average hotel with below average housekeeping, at least in this case.
