I'm not sure where to start. Overall it is very, very expensive for the value received. The rooms are old and smell like cleaning products covering up smoke and other scents. The front desk staff was less than helpful and rude at some points. The strangest thing is that you are expected not only to tip the housekeepers but the landscapers and other property help as well. The description of the suites make them seem like they were totally remodeled in 1995 but more like just patched up. The sheets are only changed every 3 days. The air conditioners barely kept the room cool. Like the other reviewer said, you have to pay upfront for the entire stay and it is only refundable with 30 days notice, now I know why!!!
