My family had two rooms over graduation weekend--a very busy time. I felt they should have been better prepared for the crowd. Only one of our rooms was ready by check in and they couldn't accommodate our request for an early check in. The first room had a nice display of graduation information, small snacks and an odd keepsake rock. When we eventually got the second room, it had no towels or shower curtain and none of the extras. The office wouldn't even deliver the towels, but asked us to come to the office. For $200 a night, I expect more. On Sunday, neither room was made up by the time we returned at 4:30.
While we knew the policy, it was an expensive error to give no refunds or allow changes after Feb 1st (for a stay in May) when the room would have been snatched up in a minute.
Otherwise, it was clean and had an above average pool area with comfortable chairs.
