  • 8,0.Very good

    Great stay!

    The hotel is beautiful. The rooms are very large, big enough for a king blowup if additional bedding is needed. The bathroom is roomy and has a large walk-in shower. The water is a little too soft, but that’s everywhere these days. The pool and spa were amazing, but the employee on duty was on to everyone there for making standard noise during pool hours. He threatened to charge customers rooms to our accounts if anyone complained. He also came out and told us two ladies wanted to get in to the spa. We said ok of course, but it was strange since we all paid for the same amenities. They did forget to service our room but serviced all others in our travel party and were very apologetic. Overall, great stay. Highly recommend.

    You want to stay here

    This location was perfect for us. We booked 2 rooms and they accommodated us across the hall from each other. We left two items and they called before marking it home to ask how they could help get it to us.

    Excellent!

    The rooms are very well thought out. I have stayed her several times now and the rooms are large, the bed and bedding is super comfortable and the plug-ins are everywhere, certainly accommodating our many electronic needs. Everything is well thought out.
