I was surprised at some of the bad reviews on here, and would have to say that they are more the exception than the rule. We stayed here Memorial weekend, and found the room to be perfectly acceptable in size, the bathroom was a good size, and the patio, while small, isn't something that you'd probably spend time on anyway, since the pool is outside your front door. Ed and Larry were very nice, offering good advice on restaurants, free water when it got hot, etc. There's a lot of little touches that most hotels don't offer, and I found myself trying to find things wrong, and couldn't. We stayed in one of the rooms that doesn't have lounge chairs in front of it, and just took some others that were around the pool. No big deal. In fact, we switched twice on the first day and no one cared. They have free DVDs to borrow, magazines to read, newspapers in the morning, wifi, etc. The hosts were gracious, I had no problems with the beds (in fact, we slept TOO much!), and there were plenty of little touches that I find other hotels lacking. Teresa, their ninja maid, cleaned our rooms, without us ever seeing her. If people needed an extra towel, she'd give it to them, and the kitchenette, while a little small, contained everything in it that you would ever need - including ice cubes in the freezer. My biggest complaint was that they didn't have the channels listed on the back of the remote, but that's just being REALLY picky, and shows the level that you have to go to, in order to find something wrong.
Definitely a place I'd stay at again!
