Nice stay but needs facelift
Location wonderful and staff friendly. Rooms are clean but run-down, and beds sink in the middle.

It's Not a Resort
It's not a resort. It's a 2-star hotel. No elevator or luggage carts. You need to carry everything which also means you may need to go up one or two flights of stairs. You have to pay a daily "resort" fee-for what I don't know. Washing machine is not free-$3 in quarters and only two. King bed suite is small. If you have a lot of stuff, storage space will be an issue. Parking spots are narrow, and it is difficult to walk in between parked cars with luggage. Only mini fridge in kitchen; not a full-size fridge Bed and pillows comfortable; room clean; good shower and storage for toiletries and such; place was quiet I cannot recommend this place. I would not stay there again.
