We were a bit disappointed in this accommodation. We got stuck with a unit that hasn't been refurbished in a decade and it was obvious. The decor was dated and ugly and the worst part was that it smelled like a mixture of musty and old medicine. We even tried using air fresheners and none of them worked. It made us not want to spend any time there. Most of my interactions with the staff were friendly but the woman at the desk when I checked in was a little rude. The hot tub only halfway worked. The main manager was very nice and friendly and the location is very good.
