Nice place for family.
This was a nice hotel. The service was great and the room was very comfy and clean. We had a great time in the pool area. We did not visit the restaurant or bar that was on the property but I was nice knowing that those amenities were right there and available for my family to use if needed or wanted.

Unfriendly Staff
The stay was fine, Check in was quick, rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. We have stayed here before as a family and I was not happy with how they treated us the next morning. Housekeeping kept knocking on our door starting at 8am, we woke up late which has never been a problem in the past which happens occasionally cause we are only human, but was called at 11am by front desk staff and I explained we woke up late and I was getting us all ready could we have a late check out, the front desk staff which was very rude told me "You need to be out in 15 minutes or I'm charging you for another night, that's all the time I am allowing you". Now I could see him being rude if we were partying like most people do in this motel all the time, but we was a quiet family just trying to have a good weekend, well since he only gave us 15 minutes to get out that left 2 of us not being able to shower and had to stop at a gas station to finish getting ready. I will not recommend this place to anybody, I have been a good customer for years because of the convenience to eating and shopping and never been treated so badly. They better send there staff to customer service training or if they don't like their job they better find a new profession.

Attn to detail
There was a problem checking in and attention to detail. It is quite a walk back and forth to a far room when your in a hurry to use the restroom and the keys were set up wrong the first trip to the front desk.
