The entire hotel is filthy. The rooms with "pool view" stink like chlorine and have evidence of mold. Many shoddy repairs to walls and ceiling. The bathroom, well, not good. We moved rooms twice. Three different rooms, all filthy. The last one was a suit, which was bigger.....and dirty. They host weddings, which they don't tell you until you check... More

This property has something for everyone. Gorgeous pool area with trees, chaise lounges, quiet atmosphere and an indoor pool. The very large banquet hall has a raised band shell like area and the Saturday night party looked very festive. There are many other large and small rooms which would be great for gatherings. The hotel looks as though it has... More

I stayed in this hotel last night and was completely impressed. The staff is outstanding...in particular, I would single out Juna and Krysta from the front desk.

We had a family function at this hotel and stayed overnight. Pretty and clean, the front desk staff Krysta and June were super friendly and helpful with all our needs. The bartender and restaurant staff were super friendly too. Had a nice evening here. I would recommend a function or stay here. Thank you

At this price point today, I expect the room to have a fridge at least, and usually a microwave. The desk told me some rooms do, some don't. I could accept the general shabbiness of the room (crumbling grout in bath for instance), but the heater is antique and so noisy it kept us up all night as it cycled... More

Extremely clean beds and towels. Beautiful and quiet location. Close to the highway. I actually stayed here 3 different times in October for business.
