The plumbing situation is inexcusable. I could not manage the off/on valve for the shower at all, it stuck and took a huge amount of strength to operate. I was there 3 days and no hot shower ever, that was definitely NOT my money's worth! I think they should have discounted my room for such a flaw. Also there were scads of mosquitoes around the property.

This is a motel, so it’s loud. There was a hot breakfast but you had to walk back across the parking lot (in a cold rain) to eat it. This is due to Covid protocols but other hotels allowed eat in dining. Main building has been updated but rooms have not.

Hot tub and pool don’t open until 9 a.m.?? Check out is 11. So we didn’t get to use the pool, much to my grandsons disappointment. Shampoo and body wash dispensers were empty. Front desk seemed rude when we checked in and when we called for info. We asked where we could get pizza since no info in the room. They didn’t even tell us there was a Round Table next door. All in all the worst place we stayed on our trip.

The room had ants. The heater didn't work. Th hot water was reversed. My husband made us leave at 5 in the morning because of these conditions. When we complained at the front desk the person behind the counter said he could not give us a discount because I booked it online. It was one of the worst BW I have ever stayed at.
