My husband, 9-year old son and I stayed here for 2 nights. I booked this online through priceline, who, even though I'd entered 2 adults and 1 child, only showed the 2 adults in the confirmation. I called the hotel right away to make sure they knew we would have a child with us and that he would have a bed. The girl on the phone said it wouldn't be a problem but didn't bother getting my information at all to make sure to note it. Sure enough, when we arrived, we only had a king bed, no couch and no roll-aways. Fortunately, the front desk girl was able to accomodate us and get us into a 2-queen room.

Beds were comfortable, great location for what we were there for (beach, Wild Animal Safari Park, visit family) staff was friendly, refrigerator in room worked nicely and room was clean. Nothing fancy but we were only there to sleep and bathe. There was a weird noise that came out of the AC unit when it shut off but after I fell asleep, I didn't notice it. Had a room toward the back so there wasn't any highway noise. Some loud people the first night but they quieted down by 11:30 or so.

They played a couple of children's movies by the pool both nights we were there. That was a nice touch and the families all seemed to enjoy and appreciate it.

Room Tip: Room in the back is close to pool and probably quieter, being further away from the highway. Room o...

At first I was going to write a negative review, but then I realized that we paid a very cheap rate for this hotel (which was our goal) and when you pay a cheap rate, you will have to make some sacrifices. My family had 8 adults for 4 nights, and we stayed here. Overall, it was a decent experience for the price. Here is what I liked: very friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast (not a continental but you receive a voucher for the hotel restaurant), clean pool and nice hot tub, clean rooms, great location. The sacrifices came in with: small bathroom with scratchy towels, a lot of noise at night sometimes, and one of our rooms smelled like smoke (the other was just fine). We didn't try to switch out of the smoky smelling room only because we were unmotivated to move, but I am confident they would have switched us had we asked.

I was ok with initially reserving this on line from Wyndham which had a lower-price special. Then my plans changed & I needed 2 rooms, so I reserved another but it was a lot more money. I later realized there were several websites with different pricings, secured what I needed but had to call to keep the reservations straight as I could never find the on-line reservation and pricing I already had. I picked this hotel as it included a free breakfast (voucher). But when i arrived I was told that was "another type" of a reservation which didn't show up on the site where I'd reserved at all--when I hit "amenities" it only gave me all of them including breakfast.
The hotel itself was clean but barren, old and very basic. Staff were pleasant but curt. Grounds were barren.
Email said "survey will follow"--it didn't.

Room Tip: all rooms identical. I had a room in the back, viewed the parking lot; front was similar.
