Had a nice 2 day stay here. Room was clean Nice pool area. Decent places to eat near by. Only thing I was not crazy about was the sofa bed.I think I had better nights rest while sleeping on rocks and twigs in the wild. Stay was still good

We waited in line 45 minutes to check in. The management knew a large number of people were checking in but only had one person--a new employee--working at the front desk. She was rude, unfamiliar with technology, slow and unhelpful.

The room was nice and spacious. The first room I got had a super loud heater/air unit. I had to change rooms. The second one was not much better. I went in the winter and had to run the heater. It ran all night long pumping hot air then cooler air and going back and forth to keep the room...
