This is my first online review ever. Wow...this place is old! Made reservations here because a friend was having a party at the bar in the resort. We were going to check out immediately but there were no rooms available anywhere else in town. When we checked out the next day the receptionist told us we should have been told that the hotel is "antiquated" when we called to make the reservation... we were not. The hotel is old and musty smelling and your room will have a 13" tube t.v. and that is it! It feels like a rooming house. We have traveled all over (Hawaii, Florida, Mexico, Chicago, New York) have never been this disappointed. A few things strike me as odd. The hotel acknowledging that they tell guests (sometimes) that the hotel is antiquated, so it seems they know the hotel is unacceptable on many levels. The employees that we dealt with upon check in and check out seemingly were not surprised by our initial complaints, as if they had heard it all before. And lastly, we got all this for the low price of 150.00 for the night. This place should be ashamed. Do yourself a favor and stay elsewhere- this place is a dump!
