the property is pretty confusing. upon arrival it is hard to tell which building is the guest registration. my husband pulled up to the building entrance that we thought the front desk was in. i ran in to check, turned around to give him the thumbs up to start unloading while i ran in to check us in and get a bell cart. i first asked for a bell cart and was told there were none, then was asked what room i was in. i said i hadn't checked in yet and the girl advised me that i should check in first so she can figure out where my room will be located before we unload the car. so i ran outside, and told my husband to put everything back into the car. went back inside to check in, received our room keys and were told that we were on the second floor and there was no elevator but we were right near the staircase in that building. i asked for a bellman to assist us and was told there wasn't one. so i went back outside, my husband unloaded the car again, and I carried all of our bags up the stairs by myself while he parked the car. (sure i could have waited for him but i just wanted to get to the room). so if this hotel doesn't have elevators, they surely should offer some sort of luggage assistance or carts!?!?
upon arriving in our room, on a 100 degree day, our a/c was not on. i turned it on and it worked but we had to leave the room so it had time to cool down. we walked to the other building that has the restaurant and had dinner. it was fine, nothing spectacular but it was fine.
the pool was really nice and clean, room was clean and all of the staff were very friendly. i was very disappointed in the check in experience and no bell carts or luggage assistance. i would also note to mgmt that when housekeeping was cleaning they had their items pretty much strewn throughout the hallways whereas most hotels try to have a minimal impact when housekeeping is cleaning. we had to walk around piles when entering or exiting our room.
