We stayed for 2 nights for spring break with friends. 2 adults/2 kids in our room, 2/3 in theirs. The kids enjoyed it. They are fixing the place up, so we asked for a renovated room when we made reservations.
The pools were open, but very leafy. They were also cold of course, so we saw only a couple of kids in one. The indoor pool mentioned in other reviews is actually in the fitness center, which is across the street. We stopped by on our first afternoon to ask about it (a bit of a hike from our room) and they were extremely nice. We went over on our second day to the pool, which was great. You do have to bring your own towels.
The breakfast buffet was fairly large, but bacon cost $1.50 extra. The eggs were quite tasty the first day, but did not look good to me the next day. The fruit was very fresh and we all enjoyed it. No sugary cereal which disappointed the kids, but didn't bother me! We were seated quite quickly both days. The wait staff was not great. I kept having to flag them down for coffee, and forget it if it wasn't their table. They were also bussing the tables, so we did have some plates stacked, as we were supposed to get new ones on return trips. We did not have to stand in line behind more than one person to get a meal ticket for the next day, but it was right after breakfast, so we could see the lobby and know it wasn't crowded.
The blackout curtains worked extremely well. My husband got up early both days and went to the lobby so as not to disturb us, and didn't realize how light it was outside until he opened the door.
Yes, the outlets are a bit inconvenient, but we just left ours to charge overnight. We did have to call to get the tv to turn on and stay on.
The in-room coffee is terrible. I was very happy that the restaurant coffee was better.
Traffic is one way on each side of the property, but they need a few more signs about it. I don't know how many cars/motorcycles I saw go the wrong way. Fortunately they were going slow.
