We booked this place for 3 nights after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. Maybe it was just the unit they put us in, but it smelled musty, the carpet was filthy, and the bed was hard. The internet is spotty at best. This is not a hotel, it is a vacation rental. There is no one in the office after 5 pm, no daily maid service, no coffee. We did enjoy having more space than a hotel room, the quiet location and the hot tub.
