    Although the pool was under construction, the front desk worker called another hotel to allow us to go swimming. The room was very nice and the bed was comfortable. The wrap around in the shower had a bubble but overall it was good. The hallway creeked a lot and was questionable but it was very a very quiet stay!

    Not worth the money I had to pay.
    Well since book through you had to pay them a $50 deposit got back in two days as long as we dont do anything to room. Walk in shade on light was off with bolts laying on table. Went to bathroom used coffee filter in the trash still. Bed was not comfortable toss and turned back hurting in the morning. Went to pool and water was really salty and big paint chips on the ceiling so that was fun laying on back looking up at that.before we left I had walked by and there was a open tampon applicator on floor laying next to the wall.
