We just returned from a first time stay (5-days Sun-Thurs) at this property. Since we were busy attending a tennis tournament during most of our stay and really only needed a clean, comfy place to sleep at night, we wanted a convenient, affordable hotel. This hotel fit the bill perfectly.
Since our stay was not over a weekend, the hotel was not terribly full and we got a great rate. Our room was better than expected (not as outdated as some reviews have said), although the carpet was a bit stained and needed replacing and the TV was old. The fact that our room had two separate sinks/vanity areas was an unexpected and convenient amenity. The beds were comfy and the room was very quiet. The adult pool was large, quiet, and clean. The small workout room by the pool has minimal equipment. We found the hotel staff to be efficient and friendly. The only disappointment was that the continental breakfast was VERY minimal and was served in a conjested area with little seating. You're better off spending a few bucks and eating a nice breakfast at either of the two nearby full-service restaurants (next door or directly across the street). They're both excellent.
