It was a pretty decent place except no pool or hot tub . Then I got home & they had put the bill on a wrong Credit card after asking them to put it on another card. Young unprofessional desk clerks. Also there was a broken step outside. A lawsuit waiting to happen.

The room was not cleaned one of the days and the pool area was closed the staff told us it had been closed for a long time and owners didn't care to fix it cause they didn't care about the hotel. I was very disappointed cause I had kids with us.

The property is fine, nothing special. Very bare bones - a place to sleep, but don't expect to want to hang out here. The bathroom was gross, I opted to wear flip flops in the shower because I really wasn't sure if it had been cleaned recently. The linens seemed clean and the air conditioning unit worked fine.
