We chose this hotel based on the good reviews, what a mistake! We went there with family. First of all the hotel was a bit deserted. The hotel is nice, but that's all to it. The second night we were there we decided to take a drive to the next town. When arrived we realized someone broke into our room and ROBBED ALL OUR STUFF. They took my brother in laws IPAD, all our cellphones, clothes,cameras,my luggage with most of my clothes, our shower bags, cologne, even our wet bathing suites that were left outside to dry! They even trashed the room looking for more valuables. We notified the front desk and spoke to the owner. They called the police and we made a report. We came to the conclusion that it had to be someone from the hotel itself, An Inside job. The owner seemed concerned and assured us she would reimburse us everything that was lost, to give her a couple weeks, That was until we left... It has been over one month. We have called her over ten times. She gives us the run around and tells us it's not "Her" problem, we need to file a claim with her insurance company, but refuses to give us her insurance info. This robbery ruined our whole vacation. We didn't have most of our stuff. This Hotel is not safe especially if your traveling with your children.
