    The grounds and rooms are spread out so room noise from one to another is unlikely. The grill has great food and good prices. Anthony was our server and was terrific.

    Decent hotel, pay for most things, Service okay
    So I arrive at the hotel, and parking is not included with the stay. Its 13.95 per vehicle, and breakfast is not included at the rate I paid. It is included at an additional charge of 20 dollars.Okay. No problem. At least customer service was open and honest from the start. The property is well maintained. I arrive at the room to drop my things off. The cable does not work. Called the office at 4pm. They sent a tech to work on it. I stepped out for several hours. Arrived back at 930pm. The cable was still out. I called the front and they told me they called Direct TV and reset the hardware, and believed it was still working. They said, 'we can change your room or give you free breakfast. But since it is late, we do not know if you want to change rooms at this time.' I decided to stay put and deal with it since I was going to bed anyway. So I chose the breakfast. When I got up at 6am, I began to notice multiple issues with the room. About 4 tiles on the tub wall were cracked and missing. The tub was clean though. The grout/caulking in the tub was stained with a rust color giving the appearance that these particular spots were not cleaned thoroughly. The bathroom mirror left corner was broken and appeared to have a plastic tape to cover the edge. The lamp in the corner did not work. Breakfast was fine...not worth 20 dollars to me but okay. Overall I was not satisfied. I will not stay here again. Just my experience.
