We were two couples on a weekend getaway. We weren't able to get into our first choice and we were a little leary. But it turned to be a very good choice. On our way to the hotel we received a call from the owner that there was a problem with our reservation. It was quickly corrected and our rooms...

The hotel has listened to their visitors and made significant upgrades to the rooms and lobby. Creating a breakfast nook makes grabbing some breakfast quick and fast. Also the rooms are comfortable and spacious. Looking forward to the exterior upgrades on my next visit

Rooms and lobby have been dramatically updated since our last visit! Would definitely book a stay again. Great value for the money. Had great time with family and friends in the pool area. Would like to try a themed room next time.

Stayed for NYE 2017 for one night. Check in was a bit strange. If you arrive prior to 3p you check in and then wait for room keys and indoor fun center until 3p. many folks and their coolers, bags etc. hanging around the lobby waiting for their name to be called to get their keys. Once checked in and...

on a whim, tried the crystal cave room. all i can say is WOW! there are serveral designer suites available at this location, and the craftsman that created these rooms truly did a remarkable job. If you are passing thru, take a chance. Highly recommended for couples! :)

Everything was perfect, we had a fantasy suite and would very much like to do it again! We can not wait to go back and see the newly renovated outside of the hotel along with the new suties they will be adding onto the hotel! We highly recommend this hotel!
