We decided to take a staycation close to home with the grandkids. 7/19-22/14 After reading the many bad reviews for this hotel I was pleasantly surprised. We had a kitchenette: which was great for the kids. We didn't have to eat out much.
The pros: the comp. breakfast was excellent, I slept like a baby on their bed, an indoor/outdoor pool and the staff were very nice. We were also close to the markets and a park for the kids.
The cons - the 2 burner stove didn't work, they had to replace my coffee pot and they could use some cosmetic updating. The water pressure in the toilet wasn't very good.
You can't always rely on a lot of the bad reviews, because everyone has different taste. All in all we had a great time and will do it again next summer.
