I stayed at this hotel for part of my family vacation.
I was very pleasantly suprised with the room. The room layout is a little odd, you enter into a vestibule with faux hardwood flooring - the sink and vanity are here, not in the bathroom. I figured this was part of the "pet friendly" design.the lobby and elevator vestibules have this flooring instead of carpeting.
The room had all the amenities of the much more expensive hotel I stayed at for the other half of my trip....refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker. The room was pleasantly designed in an inexpensive but attractive retro modern design. The lobby had this same theme and was a very pleasant place to hang out. The pool areas was also nice.
Most ot the guests had pets which made for a friendly atmosphere in general, but if you don't like animals this is not the place for you. The breakfast isn't well stocked and they only serve until 9AM, that was a downside--------as well as the lack of restaurants in the area.
This place was WAY nicer than I expected for the price and I would recommend it highly, especially to pet owners.
