The staff here were decent.
The garden was very comfortable and laid back with hammocks and such. The kitchen was nice to have but it could be difficult to get some space in during peak hours. My partner is gluten free and the kitchen was pretty dirty on a regular basis. Our room was in decent shape and clean. The train did go by very early in the morning. the restaurant on site is not the quickest service you will ever get but the food was alright. Drinking here was fun and drink specials were awesome.
Some one did get shot or at least shot at very early one morning, down the road but still close enough to hear the shots, the fleeing vehicle and the sirens.
