We rented 2 rooms for 4 people at a bargain rate to join friends at a reunion. As we were leaving we suddenly had a need to host an afternoon for 12 more people. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us. We had a great lunch at a reasonable price, teens swam in a lovely pool and adults chatted away with no pressure.

The rooms themselves were clean, reasonably equipped. But did need some small repairs,

Room Tip: Skip the breakfast and eat lunch here. Food is fresh, tasty and very reasonable. We were 16 people a...

We recently had a family reunion at this hotel and I can't say enough about what a great experience we all had. Our family booked 5 rooms for the weekend. We had a catered party in the bar. The food was incredible and the staff was very accommodating. Once the banquet was over, we all sat outside in the courtyard enjoying ourselves. The indoor outdoor pool was perfect for the kids. It was a rainy weekend so the facility was perfect for our gathering. I have no complaints at all about this facility at all. We would do it again in a heartbeat.
