This hotel is brand new and was rated #1 on TA when I chose it. Of course I expected a good, clean place. Pulling into the parking lot, the sun was setting in a gorgeous pink sky. What an entrance. After a quick check-in, where yet another person on our long trip actually asked for my ID--thank you, we headed upstairs to our room. When I opened the door (convenient new tap key card locks) I knew I'd been given the wrong room. Our 2 Queen Suite was so large and so beautiful, there was no way this could be $94/night AAA. I had to stop and compare what I was looking at with the photos they'd offered online. Twice the size of any normal hotel room, this suite offered a desk room divider that while wide open in the center, separated the room visually. The bathroom was attractive and spotless. Products good, towels thick and large. We slept very well on the comfy beds with sheets softer than any we've ever experienced. Breakfast was again well laid out with 2 waffle machines at opposite sides of the breakfast area. Fresh cut fruit was a welcome addition. Staff kind and friendly. Despite some construction going on in the area, I cannot say enough good about this hotel. The only downside was that the lovely outdoor pool was so full of other guests we couldn't use it. I wish our plans had not changed, requiring me to cancel our reservation for the following week. With a sink, spacious counter and fridge at the entrance, you could easily be comfortable in this room for a week's stay. Really ,even as a less expensive hotel, this could be a 6.
