I stayed here for 2 nights over the long wkend. I was fairly unimpressed if not downright disappointed with most aspects of my room.
Even before entering; I was put in a "suite" ...unit 410, I noticed that the door frame and door itself were pretty filthy and in need of some new paint. The room itself is unspectacular, especially at $289.00/night. There is a real sense of neglect in the room, a few small holes in the walls, very old CRT TV's in the cabinets, the cabinet door in the bedroom was practically falling off its hinges and what channels you do get, half are very snowy. I really felt like I was back in the '70's living in my parents basement. They have definitely gone bargain basement on the beds. I have literally never slept on such rock hard mattresses in my life. Another oddity was that this unit came with 2 queen beds but they both were in the same bedroom. Very odd unless you're Dick Van Dyke and your wife is Mary Tyler Moore.
The beds were so bad that my 2nd night there I dragged the mattress from one bed and placed it on top of the other bed.......seemed to make it even worse.
I was initially to stay 3 nights but had to leave and find another hotel after the 2nd night b/c all the beds were identical in all the units.
Soundproofing is non-existent. I had people above me and the floors are so thin that more than once I thought that the creaking of a bedroom door was actually someone coming into my bedroom.
They list this place as a resort but just take a drive down through the property which is nice I must admit, but you'll notice things like the extremely cheap and filthy outdoor plastic chairs they give every unit instead of possibly placing a few nicer and far more comfortable Adirondack chairs outside.........................maybe even with a small table to set a drink or a cup of coffee on.
Lastly..................if you are to call yourself a resort at the very least have wifi available in the rooms.
I would not recommend this "Resort" to anyone unless they decrease their rates substantially.
