“Awesome & Courteous Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

The staff went above & beyond for us. They were so helpful, courteous & genuinely professional. A big Thank You especially to: Dobri, Nala, Dave & Kaila! We really appreciated all of their help, info. & hospitality. The housekeeping & breakfast staff were also very friendly & happy! We had no problems getting breakfast & plenty of choices & lots of food, especially when you're having to feed two Marines! We would definitely stay there again. I agree the shuttle could run later than 8 pm, we had 2 really friendly drivers & 1 that was pretty rude & grumpy. But all in all even the shuttle was a nice thing to have! The hotel & rooms are a little outdated, but we enjoyed our stay.
