“Don't even think about it!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2011

It still has not gotten better, and the previous reviews are correct. Friendly greeting, pretty grounds, but downhill from there. We needed a king sized bed so they put us in the single rooms. Room was dark, dank, and the carpet had seen its better days. Bathroom was small, with plumbing: faucets mounted the wrong way (open is close!), drain barely working, shower drips instead of sprays, and drain does not work. Air conditioner noisy the whole night.

Pool was open, but the chlorine so heavy I thought my suit was going to turn white. Yep, the whirlpool was open but tepid (guy did not want to make it more than 100 degrees but it was barely 80, and no whirl in the pool.

No breakfast in the morning, so rule out the "breakfast" in the advertising. Got o "Betty's down the road.

Room Tip: Look somewhere else.

Dear Guest,
We do appreciate the feedback and are very eager to make sure all of our guests are 100% satisfied and have a very pleasant stay with us. Regarding your concerns, we are the new owners and will be looking into these issue to ensure that everything is in order. For breakfast, it used to be in the restaurant, which has been vacated recently, so while we get it back up and running, we do have continental breakfast in our lobby area. Our apologies, and please do give us another try if you are ever in the area.

Sincereley, Jon Hansen - Manager
