    a couple of things

    The place needs more parking...especially handicapped parking. Very disappointed the breakfasts had been cancelled.

  • 6.0.Good


    The room couldn't have been more sterile/institution looking as everything was white. That also made it a lot easier to see the dirt. It wasn't a dirty room, but it could have been a little cleaner. There was no warmth to the decor at all; not even any pictures! Even the lighting had an interrogation look to it as it was in a terrible location and threw shadows everywhere! The bed and pillows were comfortable though :)

    Overall the place is loud. The birds caged on the property are pretty but loud. Kids started swimming in the pool at 7:15am screaming. The walls are thin and the doors slam loud. There were never towels at the pool. Other than that the room wasn't bad. Enough space for three and the bed was comfortable even though the pillows were small.

    The bed was not comfortable. We did not get housekeeping service on two of our four days. We needed towels and asked the front desk. They said housekeeping was gone and they could not help us. We ended up having to take pool towels. The best parts of the hotel were the pool area and the bar. The bartender Brett was the favorite part of our stay. He was extremely friendly and made the best drinks

    New Retro

    The only thing I was disappointing was that the normal breakfast was not available due to Covid-19 restrictions

    3 Star price for a 2 Star Stay

    Out of date room with retro design. Minimal on site parking. There is a bird cage outside near the pool. So plan on waking up to morning chirrup. Great customer service. The Rep was welcoming, acknowledged me and asked for my room preference. I don't know why hotels are never clear about the deposit. For this hotel 150.00 deposit on credit/debit card. They say you will get it back when you check out but it actually takes 3-5 business days. Depening on hotel and your financial institution. I got my deposit back in 5 business days. The only issue for me was the cleanliness of the room. Its not cleaned thoroughly. Hair left behind, settling dust, dried debris on the walls and sticky carpet.

    Very Sketchy Place

    When we checked in, the attendant told us that there was going to be $150 hold on our card which would be refunded after our stay was completed (of which we had not known about in advance nor had any hotel ever charge such a thing for a low level hotel/motel such as this) She was rude when telling us this about the rule and then proceeded to tell us that the $150 would be refunded as long as there was no damage to the room. She said this 3 times without prompting - that we would only get our money back if there’s no damage to the room. Like, how many times have ppl damaged the rooms?!! Then as we walked through the outdoor courtyard to our room we saw the giant birdcage next to the pool. A birdcage. With tons of chirping birds. Just a few yards from our window. When we got in the room it smelled like a toilet, very musty. The bathroom was the size of a postage stamp. The toilet paper roll holder already had “damage” to it and was hanging by one screw. We decided not to sleep there and just leave (through the enormous steel bars that serve as a gate surrounding the property) When we did, we noticed that the parking lot had a sign that said it was under surveillance 24 hrs and was shared with a hidden entrance to a “massage parlor”. Gross. Not to mention the several beer cans in the parking lot. Needless to say we did not feel safe so we just left and didn’t bother getting our $70 back for the room. We found a country inn and suites nearby and they didn’t charge $150 deposit.
