I have stayed here quite a few times already and really, it's not bad at all. The rooms are decent and their pool is a nice size and deeper than six feet. They also offer complimentary mini golf and there is a basketball court. If you have a view of the race course, it's a plus...great view and you can... More

I had a friend come into town and thought it would be nice to change the pace of things and check into the hotel and enjoy the pool, amenities, and ambiance. We had such a good time, we extended the stay another night with a simple phone call and quick visit to the front desk. Beautiful view, and pool was... More

Very good location and friendly and helpful staff. Affordable for family getaways. The beds sleep well and great pools. The continental breakfast is much better than other places that I've stayed that include breakfast. The grounds are beautiful for taking pictures. I will definitely stay again.
