This hotel has some of the nicest staff I have talked to when checking in to a hotel! The reason I am only giving this hotel an "Average" rating is because there are a few improvements that could be made.
1.) The pool! It was pretty cold outside (which is normal for Fort Bragg, we go often) and I was surprised at how cold the "Heated" pool was. The Hot tub was nice, but I had my 2 year old niece with me so we thought the pool would be perfect for her (didn't want her to go in the hot tub) but after about 5 to 10 minutes none of us could stand it anymore and our lips were purple. I also left a note with the front desk when checking out about the pool being cold.
2.) There was a spider on the wall in our room above the head board! I am not afraid of spiders so it didn't bother me, but when you are paying for a room that is not something that you should have to deal with.
3.) As I had read in the previous reviews about the pool towels, they were totally on point! The pool towels were so small and thin and scratchy :-/. The bath towels were just fine. But the pool towels wouldn't even fit around any of us. However the were the perfect size for my 2 year old niece! We had brought our own beach towels so it ended up being fine.
Those were the 3 major things that I noticed needed improvement! We would probably try staying again in the future, I just hope they listen to us on our reviews and seriously take into consideration little upgrades here and there. I know it can be expensive and I wasn't expecting luxury, but a real "heated" pool and better towels would be a great start!
I didn't get a chance to try the famous home made muffins, but if we come again I will be sure to! We also appreciated that we were able to have a later check out. (Instead of 11 they let us stay until 12) Which was nice because we had went Abalone diving in the morning.
