The grounds maintenance staff tried hard to maintain the grounds, they were always cleaning and removing debris. The building maintenance staff were sub-par. The first room we were in the plexiglass where there was supposed to be glass was not sealed and you were able to put things in the room through the gap. We let the front desk know about this and other issues with the room. The building maintenance guy came and addressed the other issues, then looked at the plexiglass not being sealed and said he would need to get some weather stripping and we never saw him again. The next day I received an email from Travelocity asking about our stay and I replied with all the items that were wrong with the room. Within an hour I received a call from the front desk offering to upgrade us to a different room for free. Why wasn't this offered to us the day before when we talked to the person at the front desk about the issues? We moved to the upgraded room, that room had it's issues too, but they were more tolerable than the first room. The upgraded room was on the first floor and when it rained we had a lot of water come in through the bottom of the door. The air conditioning unit was mounted above the bed and the condensation would drip down on you while you were sleeping like some kind of water torture. The breakfast was ok. Lots of carbs (bread, bagels, French toast, waffles) there was also hard boiled eggs, ham, swiss cheese, cold cereal and fresh fruit.

I can't tell you anything about the pool as we never got to go in it due to time. I can tell you that the animals they have on site are amazing to look at, the nurse sharks are fun to feed, and the rooms have hammocks on the patios. It was the most relaxing thing to swing my kid to sleep under the sky in a hammock. The room we stayed in was so cute, a little on small side for a shower and the curtain let all the water out all over the floor so that was a little dangerous with small kids, but over all very happy with this stay. I wish we had more time.

It was a very lean room.parked the car right in front of it. Shuttle was very comfortably waiting for us and took us back and forth to downtown. Breakfast was OK ,could have more choices of meat or eggs.
