The hotel looks great from the outside, but looks are deceiving. Let me say the staff was great. The hotel and pool were very nice, but the room was run down. Tiles were cracked in the bathroom and the rest of the room seemed very dated and smelled. The worst part was the noise from the balcony. I could hear...

People running, laughing and yelling in the hallway well past 11:00 p.m. was quite annoying (a bit much even for a Saturday night).

My husband and I stayed here with our dog, as this place is dog friendly. Check-in was a breeze and did not take very long. We then made it to our room, which thankfully, wasn't a "you've got a dog, stay in THIS room" room. The room was clean and quite large, and I felt it to be wasted space...

The visit started with a real poor check in. The staff struggled to get us checked in and made their problems our problems. No apology for the delay or hassle just excuses and blame storming. The rooms a very large but stark. The restaurant is expensive and empty.
