Pros: Grounds are nice, staff is very courteous and helpful. Secluded location (if thats what youre after). Free Wifi.
Cons: Tiny rooms, with doubles instead of queens. No coffee pot, no iron, no hair dryer in room. Tiny shower in a tiny bathroom. Everything needs a makeover from the old worn carpet to the cracked tiles and rusty pipes on the toilet. the faucets were missing labels and the water came out in a weird spray into the slow runningdrain. Not to mention the 19" tube tv with wires hanging down which was operated by a remote I had to hold up and point at an angle. Dismal selection of channels. Everything felt cheap including the cheap sticky chairs in the dining area. The cereal was soggy and the danish was tiny. No bananas. As you can tell there are too many "no's".
Bottom Line is we expected more. The pretty grounds and location were not enough to make up for the condition of the place. It just needs major renovation. Its really more of a motel in a nice location than a resort.
The staff was very pleasant and our stay wasnt terrible but I think my critique is fair and honest. At almost $200 a night one could do better.
