The property is cute, well designed and offers great amenities! However, our room looked like it had seen better days. There were dark stains on both the carpet and ceiling, our toilet was running/wouldn’t flush, and the door to our mini fridge wouldn’t close all the way. The bed also was VERY creaky with even the lightest sit on it. There was a small bathroom sink/counter that is poorly lit and hard to get ready at. We felt that the quality/4 star resort level they boasted was only surface level and was very much lacking in the details

In light of recent events, I called to cancel/request credit for the reservation I made. However, the person I was forwarded to on the phone did not answer and never returned my call as I left a message explaining the situation. I plan on calling again to see if they will give me credit for the reservation but an email or phone call would have been appreciated.

I apologize that you did not receive a timely call back, and that we missed your call the first time. As you can imagine, we have received an influx of reservations changes and cancellations, and are doing our best to get back to everyone as soon as possible. Please reach out again and we would be happy to take care of you.

My flight was late so when I arrived the restaurants & room service were closed but the young lady at the desk, I believe her name was Jana, was EXTREMELY helpful and kind. She got me a sandwich and filled my ice bucket! The room was very nicely appointed and comfortable, too.

Carpets are disgusting. Rooms are clean.We were 2 adults and 1 child. There was no sofa bed for my child nor any bedding for him. We had to request a blanket for him to use and he had to sleep in a old and dirty sofa. I will not stay again.

We do apologize, the hotel was fully renovated 6yrs ago, and we are actively replacing all guest room carpets currently. None of our guest rooms do offer sofabeds, this is something that we are potentially looking into. Again, we do apologize that we did not accommodate your needs nor meet your expectations.
