I have to start this review saying that I dont like staying in hotels and tend to be a bit picky about them...
That being said, this place was not bad, but it wasnt great either. We hotwired the room so we didnt know where we were staying until we booked. The price we aid for one night (friday night) was 149 plus tax. And that was hotwired! When we arrived to check in, I was a little disappointed. The complex is set up kind of wierd- the check in area and office are ina seperate building up front. Behind it is a motel style area with about 15 or so rooms. Then up the hill is the main section of the complex with a bunch more rooms and a dining area as well as the pool and recreation area. We got assigned a room in the main building and luckily it did not overlook the pool. We snooped in an empty room across the hall from us that did overlook the pool and I would have to say that I would not reccomend taking one of those rooms. They do not have any windows to the outside, or any natural light. The overlook the indoor pool area which is dark and can get loud when filled with a hockey team of teenage boys..... Just an FYI. The rooms are pretty dated. The televisions are the old style and are very small. The beds have those thin, rough, classic "hotel/motel" bed spreads on them, and the pillows are really tiny! The room was realtively clean, but everything was kind of dark so it was hard to tell for sure. Our rom didnt smell funny but the hallway kind of had a musty smell to it. The bathroom was the most updated part of the room and appeared very clean. The toilet seat was mind of loose though and that was annoying.
The pool was the best park of the place (not including the view out our balcony which was pretty nice) and the pool area was well kept. It was also pretty dated, but somehow in a more likeable "vintage" way and we really enjoyed the time we spent down thre relaxing in the evening. My husband and son swam and enjoyed the hot tub while I relaxed on a chair and read.
The next morning they served a complimentary breakfast, and though that is a nice perk- it was nothing to get too excited for. The eggs were good but the room was crowded, the toasters were being monopolized and they kept running out of things, like cereal and yogurt. We came down to eat about 9am and all that was really left was eggs, donuts and coffee. The dining room staff was not very friendly and kind of rude when I asked if they were going to be bringing in more cereal.
Overrall, I would most likely stay here again.
The GOOD points: nice pool and hot tub, cool pool area, great location
The BAD points: outdated, a little pricey for what it is, strange layout- make sure you pick a room that suits you. ie- remember the poolside room situation. And also there is a section of rooms more like a motel where you would have to walk to use the pool or eat in the breakfast area- its seperate from the main building.
Also worth noting- its a good location but it isnt on the main section of Saranc Ave. Its around the corner and up the hill. If you have little ones you will want a stroller.
Don't do poolside- they have no natural light and dont open to the outside at all. And if you w...
