10 of us stayed at this resort/hotel/motel for 2 nights just before the New Year. The reason we picked this property simply because it didn't have the ridiculous minimum stay requirement as the majority of the hotels in the area during the holiday weekends. Also, we did not want to spend an arm and a leg for an hotel room that we would only use for sleeping.
We originally booked two 2-bedroom suites (no kitchenette), and one regular hotel room for the 10 of us. Two days before the trip, we were notified that a travel agency overbooked the hotel and we would only be able to have one 2-bedroom suites and for the other suite that we had lost, they would give us two regular rooms with no extra charge. That worked out fine with us. The 2-bedroom suite was on the second floor. Decent size but only one of the rooms had tv and there was no refrigerator. Bathroom was kind of small. The suite was relatively clean and you could tell that the walls had been painted recently. The only problems that we had were flies in the room (we killed about 4 or 5 of them) and there was a strong smell of cleaning products. Our three other "hotel" rooms were all on the first floor. All of them were very small, but at least one of them had a fridge in it. One of the rooms had lady bugs problem.
The breakfast was so-so. There were crumb cakes, muffins, yogurts, mixed fruits, coffee, and orange juice. We only had breakfast there once and we went to the Colonial Cafe in the Golden Eagle Resort the other morning (very nice breakfast over there and it costs about $10 per person).
Overall I'm pretty happy with this hotel. Probably it'll be nicer during summer time since it has a golf course and swimming pool. We paid about $80 per person after tax for two nights. Good value!
