Lobby and public areas much nicer than rooms. Although the room was comfortable, it could use an upgrade like the main floor.

6/10 Good

I liked the pool. I disliked the slow service. The drain in the shower was slow which caused the bathroom floor to get flooded and they would take forever to come dry and mop the floor. They didn’t leave extra towels for us to use and dry the floor or floor mats. Our room was made every day but we ran out of toilet paper twice before they didn’t leave any. I didn’t like the fact that we couldn’t sleep because next to us there was a crying/screaming toddler all night long. Also a barking/howling dog all throughout the hotel that the owners had on a leash and was a sassy bratty thing that didn’t let us enjoy breakfast or the pool the first 3 days. I know this is beyond the control of hotel management but they should try to accommodate people with kids and dogs together with guest with similar needs and not close to people without infants and pets. Lots of pets in this hotel. I have a dog and love dogs but I’m considerate of other guests therefore don’t travel with my dog. Overall servers and staff were very polite and tried their best but the service needs a lot of improvement. Housekeeping is not available after 10. Our first night my daughter got sick and vomited 4 times throughout the night. Housekeeping never came. I had to suck it up until morning and at 7 am, I called and half hour later no none was coming, I needed the bathroom bad. I had to go down to the lobby in my pjs without brushing my teeth to tell them to send someone ASAP, not a good experience.
