We had an emergency and were unable to cancel are reservations. We stopped in to explain at the front desk the person was very rude. We were just letting them know the circumstances of the situation. She did not care.

For the amount of money I paid I’d expect more. The pool was dirty, the hot tub didn’t work, and the driveway in was under repair. The front desk staff were slow.

Great price and good location to all highways, food, and only a short ride to the ocean. I believe once the remodel is done it’ll be even better. Our room was very clean, only thing that would have been nice and it’s not major was I wish our rook had had a microwave. Pool and hot tub and were very clean too:
