The lobby was nice with a bar and grill attached to it. There was a nice pool area with two water slides two pools, a hot tub, and a kiddie area. The romms were nice. The beds were comfortable and the TV was nice. The bathroom was clean with a nice shower and new toiletries. Nice stay

Reviewed July 10, 2013

We stayed at this hotel over the weekend and had a blast. We got a poolside room. I was a little hesitant as we wanted a good nights sleep and the pool area tends to get loud. No complaints except for one & I'll get to that. Poolside room was great and we will book this each time-so convenient & there was no noise heard from the pool. Room was clean and roomy. My only complaint would be the mattress on the hide a way sofa. It was so thin and stained. My son slept on it and could feel the springs on the bed! This needs to be replaced as I'm sure it was uncomfortable to sleep on. Otherwise great stay-good buffet and nice staff!
