We had such a bad experience at this hotel that we left a night early after paying over $300 a night. Our room had a sleeper sofa for the kids and there was a dried up used condom stuffed down beside the mattress. On our bed, the sheets and pillow covers smelled like animals even though we had requested a pet-free room because of allergies. Air conditioner dripped on the carpet making a puddle that smelled like mold and would not dry the entire time we were there. The toilet had stains from a previous visitor, after trying to call the office 3 TIMES with no answer, we went to the grocery store and bought our own cleaning supplies -- unacceptable for any decent hotel but for those prices? TV had fuzzy reception and kids could not watch DVDs. The second night, a couple of the employees were very drunk and loud out on the dock, which was also completely infested with spiders. There was a large dog running around without a leash which seemed to belong to one of the drunken workers.
Parents beware, this place is full of mildew, mold and animals and the nearest medical facility was an hour away in summer traffic. Went to find the manager to let them know we were leaving and why and found him admonishing a young couple and blaming them! By far the worst hotel we have ever stayed in.
