The room was huge and clean. I got really sick on our first night and chose to go home early- aware that I would still have to pay for the second night- I went to the desk to check out and asked if they would refund my second night and they were happy to do that. we had also just...

It was very surprising price range for that tourist area. I reserved the room with hot tub and that is what I (surprised for my wife) received! The room is very spacious, light and completely filled with kitchen units, included dishes and cups with cooking pots and, many more than I need. It was very excited to use and ate...

Nice place...... Good location...... Great staff.......... puppy approved. ....... only drawback is that if I am too positive, it may be tough to get the times I want to stay there. We used it as a weekend trip to just get away for a few days.

We chose to stay with the Canterbury for many different reasons, and all met our expectations!! We chose room 314 for the view and we're not disappointed!! It fit our large family very well, our children loved the indoor pool and the endless amounts of board games!! One night was not enough! I was able to make a full dinner...

We've totally enjoyed our stay each & every time for the past decade. Once when the spa "a must for me" was under renovation the management made arrangements for us to simply wonder over to the Polynesian to utilize their spa. I was no longer disappointed. The staff from front desk to house keeping has been not only prompt but...

Reviews like this let the staff know their efforts are appreciated and we thank you for that. Going the extra mile to make other accommodations when we fall short is important to us. We are glad to know you continue to come back and we hope you will visit again soon!

We were welcomed as if we were regulars. Angela at the front desk made us feel like they had been waiting for us to arrive - she greeted us with the warmest, friendliest smile. Such a great start. As we were unfamiliar with the area, we realized that booking a non-view room probably wasn't our best option so we asked...

This was one of the most dog friendly hotels I have ever been to. They have dog bowls (which of course we forgot), dog linens, and doggie stations outside. It was quiet and comfortable - exactly what we needed for a weekend getaway! We will be back!

Packing up yourself is hard, let alone a dog or kids so we try to make things as comfy as possible just in case something is forgotten. We appreciate you booking with us and we are pleased to know our efforts are appreciated and that you'd be back! We look forward to having you again!

We just had four owners decide to convert their rooms to pet friendly rooms so we will now have even more rooms to accommodate our guests with dogs. Most of us love dogs and know how stressful traveling with them can be so we like to add special touches to make them feel welcomed. We do the same for kids;...
