My husband and I stayed here recently for our 5 year wedding anniversary. The staff is very friendly, the pool and hot tub were very clean, and the room was nice and spacious. The complimentary bath items in the room were from Bath and Body Works, which I loved!! I also loved that they had free Wi-Fi, which is hard to find as of late.
I only had a couple of concerns, but they weren't anything major. The first is that the cable quality was lousy. I'm not sure if it was the TV or the cable itself. The other "problem" is that the "free hot breakfast" is a bit misleading. They have a waffle maker which my husband loves, but the only hot items were scrambled eggs and bacon. They did have the standard muffins, cereal, coffee, milk, and juices. Since it was free, I'm not complaining too much. ;)
Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again.
