I booked a room from Priceline for $56...best deal ever as this property is great. Right off I-75, access was easy. Joseph, the bellman, greeted me with a nice smile and warm welcome. Gail at the front desk was efficient and gracious throughout my stay. In fact the entire staff was pleasant.
The communal areas - lounge, lobby, patio & pool area - are spacious, beautiful, and flawlessly maintained. The grounds are nicely landscaped & huge. One of my favorite spots was a gazaboo overlooking a enormous grassy area from where I could see the stable and watch Buddy the resident carriage horse.
Happy hour - 2 for 1 - lasted until 8 pm and a guitar duo providing the entertainment. Guests on the patio were visted by one of the musicians who was taking requests. Good times.
Minor maintenance issues in the room were immediately and satisfactorily addressed.
While there I saw a relegant 50th wedding gala plus kids enjoying the good sized pool. Was on the elevator with a six year old holding carrots to go out and feed Buddy whom he had met the nite before.
