A good location and a nice facility, but terribly understaffed.

Comfy and quiet
The hotel is quite nice and has great amenities. The food and drinks are good, and most of the staff are friendly. The Front Desk Staff are not as warm as the food service staff. Overall the stay was really good except for the unpleasant front desk staff who could use some help in diplomacy and customer service.

Mixed feelings about this hotel
The common areas of the hotel were really beautiful and well kept. My room's entrance was actually outside and not part of the main hotel, so when I book, that is always part of my safety considerations, and I never would have selected this hotel had I known that. My room was odd in that parts look like they had been updated, but other parts still looked old. There were no USB outlets in the room at all, and the outlet in the lamp that I plugged my charger into was a different voltage and didn't charge my device completely OVERNIGHT. The TV was small compared to other hotels I've stayed in recently. The hair conditioner in my room had been previously used by someone else (so gross). My room overlooked the pool, which was beautiful. When I asked about shuttle service (which the listing describes as an amenity), I found out that was only on the weekdays (my visit was over a weekend). And they DO NOT offer 24 hour room service as their amenities show. Their restaurant and bar both close at 11:00 PM. If I stayed in this hotel again, I would make sure and specify where I wanted my room to be, be prepared to either rent a car or use a ridesharing service (which is what I ended up doing), and make sure I had eaten if I was out late, knowing I wouldn't be able to eat there. The staff, however, was quite friendly and helpful. So that was a plus.
