We appreciated the manager, Mercy but found the owner impossible to deal with. The rooms were dirty and badly maintained. Towels and linen were changed once in 2 weeks and the owner was a vindictive woman with no people skills or respect for ones privacy. My family would never suggest this establishment to anyone.

Can you please keep the dogs inside after sunset and sunrise as they were not so friendly at these times and when you guys are not around. The dogs were fine most of time, I did not think they would charge me the morning I left.
