Outdated rooms with very thin walls. So thin that we could hear our neigbors talking and even snoring at night. Bathrooms again, very poor- waterflow poor. Not worth the $$$

While planning an outdoor wedding in June can have many benefits, it is also a small gamble in regards to weather. We obviously can’t control the weather but we do have many backup ceremony venue options available (with a significant venue rate reduction). We confirmed...More
