Wonderful Stay!
We checked in with Mackenzie. She was very friendly and efficient. The room was updated and clean. The kitchen area and full fridge helped us store a case of water and leftovers from restaurants. Very nice tv. Pool was clean and well maintained. Parking was super easy and convenient right on sight near rooms. We will definitely stay again!
