Good morning: Thank you for taking the time to review our property. It sounds as though you experienced several of our amenities and had an enjoyable time while here.

The motorcycle ride there on Hwy 1 from Hwy 61 was great,nice scenery. That was the highlight of the trip. Staff were great but the hotel room was very small,the beds were hard and air conditioner was very noisy. Had booked two nights but cancelled the second night for that reason. We gambled but the casino was very smokey and...

Our Beta Sigma Phi Sorority had convention 9-19, 20 & 23-2014. Food was amazing--rooms excellent. Kept busy, didn't get to pool, but was told it was very nice. Grounds were well kept up. Employees friendly and courteous. Wait staff served 170 and the food I had was hot.
