“nice room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

Lobby was very inviting. Room was nice and clean. Staff were very friendly. we stayed 2 nights. Very quiet. Only bad point I can think of was the trash container on the back of the building ,by the back entry was overflowing with trash for those 2 days. Other than that, great experience.

Pros:
-The rooms are nice enough. Nothing super-fancy, but what you would expect for the price point.
-The staff were quite friendly, though there was one busy person when we arrived at night.
-There was a "happy hour" with beer and wine on weeknights, though we didn't have a chance to attend.
-The pool was quite nice and there were a couple hot tubs as well.

Cons:
-First, I have very little patience for hidden fees. When you try to check in, they tell you to initial and sign a form, and you have to read it closely to notice that they have a hidden "safe fee" which will be added to your bill unless you specifically request it removed at check out. (Apparently they can't tell you about it for liability reasons.)
-The fitness center didn't have any weights or weight machines; there were just three cardio machines.
-Breakfast was mostly pastries and other unhealthy stuff. There was some fruit (i.e. apples) and oatmeal, but it was the minority.

Overall, it wasn't a bad place to stay, though you might find something else better at a similar price.

Great Price before the busy season June. Terrific breakfast. Very quiet. Nice rooms. Cleanest pool area and hot tubs I've seen. Happy hour. Only thing was the lighting and coffee room was quiet and boring.
