At one point during my 2-night stay at this hotel I told a friend that I felt like a high school kid sneaking in and out of my room in the middle of the night. The management was awful and overbearing. I talked to several other people at the hotel, some of whom said they had stayed there several times over the years and they were never going back again either because of the witch who was running the place. First, I stayed in a suite that had a bedroom and then a living room area with a sink and fridge. It was a very nice room and with an almost 2 year old, a great place for him to stay. . . except she had a rule that no food from the breakfast could be taken to the room. So, instead of watching cartoons and letting him run around while I ate breakfast, I had to stay in the dining room and try to keep him from getting into things while I ate. I ate quick I tell ya. He ate quicker. I've stayed in several hotels with my toddler and never once have we been made to eat in the dining room.
I was there to visit family and was chastised for bringing people over that were not checked in and told we couldn't use the pool with them either.
Because I was constantly questioning their rules I expected to be levied a huge fee on the end or something. I felt like I was always being watched and that they expected me to break the rules, whatever they were. I was very uncomfortable and others there expressed the same concern. It was not a relaxing stay and I was barely ever there!
