We staid twice, once on the way to San Antonio and once on the way back. The pool was frigid when we arrived in the evening on the first stay, and the kids couldn’t stay in very long because their lips were turning blue. It was getting dark thankfully and we were unaware of the pool’s condition (the light was burned out fortunately). On the way back we arrived earlier in the day. The kids jumped into the pool as I looked to see the bottom of the pool filled with debris. The water was still cold, and there was a clear sticky film on the top of the water. We pulled the kids out immediately. The light was not only burned out…it was literally out of the pool wall with the electrical cable extending from the wall, through the water, to the light fixture which was sitting next to the pool.
It was not only gross but also upsetting since there is very little to do on that road trip, and book hotels with pools so the kids have something fun to do.
We informed the front desk but nothing happened. The manager left for the day in his big shining 4x4, wearing designer clothes, and pulling a matching travel bag. I’m glad he’s profiting from a lack luster establishment so at least someone is happy. Very disappointing from a Holiday Inn. Clearly a management problem.
