    Hi! Is this possible to have a parking place for a pick-up truck? If yes, how much it is? Thanks!

    Hi There is limited oversize parking available behind the hotel. The garage however, takes vehicles up to 6' 2 ". The daily parking rate is $23 plus tax. I hope this answers your question.

    I am wondering if it is worth the money to upgrade to the larger 1 bedroom corner suite or even the 2 bedroom? We will be there for 2 nights and are two adults and one 12 year old child who will be using the pull-out. Would we be ok with the regular 1 bedroom or should we look at the 2 bedroom suite. TIA

    The pool is open 6am to 10pm. There is extra adult charges only if the kids are over 18 or there are four adults. So you will only be charged the regular room rate otherwise. Hope this answers your questions
