“Not so much”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

Looks good as you pull into the drive BUT ..... The first thing I found is that the desk very seldom has someone behind it. Seems every time I went to the front desk, there was a sign that said they had "stepped away" for awhile. Now, it could be that I just picked times when they were gone. The door to the room could not be double locked, but instead they installed a chain lock, which is not a very secure method. The room looked clean until further inspection. While looking for an outlet to plug in the numerous electronics it seems everyone travels with now days, I found mounds of dust that had not been moved in quite some time. I also inspect every room I stay in for bed bugs. While doing that I found the mattress was torn along the edges, but it was comfortable. The TV was old, but I don't travel to watch TV anyway. The furnishing in the room were VERY old, nicked and chipped. several of the lights didn't work, the internet did though so that was a plus. The area was quiet. There was a pool. A/C was functional but noisy. Another redeeming quality was the price. I probably would not stay here again. I would gladly pay a few more bucks for a cleaner, more up-to-date room
