I had heard bad reviews (and read some!) prior to arriving (but after reserving), so I was pretty worried. Seeing a sign out front that said "luxury motel" was, well, different. There were some weird things, like having to check out your TV remote when you get your key and return them together when you left. The room was somewhat cheesy/dated. There was some wear and tear in the room as well. It wasn't a five star place, for sure.
Now, with that being said, let me say that we had a FABULOUS weekend here. While there was no room service, food delivery was fast and cheap (and great). Your "rooms" are kind of in their own little buildings, and your door exits to the outside. Because of this, food delivery came right to your door and you could get it there. That was even better than room service since there was no room service price.
The staff here was incredibly helpful and friendly. The wifi was free. There were even three channels (free) of "adult entertainment." The room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. The jacuzzi tub was large and a great deal of fun. The shower room was amazing. I say room, because it looks like something you would find in a gym, with two shower heads and a sitting area against a whole wall. It was great. You could have two shower heads coming from opposite walls, hitting opposite sides of your body at the same time. Fabulous.
My husband and I spent the whole weekend in the suite for some grown-up alone time. We ordered delivery for all our meals. The room had a refrigerator, which was also nice. There was a table with chairs for two.
If you're looking for a romantic weekend away, and if you don't mind a bit of dated/cheesy decor, go ahead and take the plunge! You might just have a very fun time. There's even one theme room here that has an, ahem, swing for intimacy. :)
