2/10 Poor

The shower was filthy. The shower flour grout was black with dirt. The queen mattress was overdue to be changed. We would slump into the middle. Not to mention that it was on a full platform. The tv was just there. The restaurant was more a cafeteria with cafeteria food charging prices of a 3.5 star rest. The pool was nice as well as the outside lounge area. It was both worth the $150 rate. It was at best a $70 room. It’s more of a motel than a hotel.

You must have transportation. Dusty room. Noisy. Rest/bar needs improvement. If you expect property images same as reality, you are going to be disappointed.

2/10 Poor

Though the property did have the features it shows in its photos, they are not as pretty as shown. The entire location needs to be remodeled. I was told that it was in the middle of being upgraded which was why there was no wifi, There was also no hot water and the shower did not work. The room door did not fit in the door frame which had gaps large enough for anything in nature to crawl through. We waited over 30 minutes for an order of toast and coffee that came in a tiny cup. The music was loud at the front office and in the pool area. I do have to say that the front desk attendant was kind and sympathetic to our complaints. The location is horrible. If you do not have a vehicle you will not be able to go anywhere. I am still waiting for my refund. We had to leave.

Excellent front desk service. But very small bathroom, poor cleanliness, smelled like dog excrement from outside to the room. Room it’s not worth what it costs.
