If you're in the market for a pounding headache from a dj's 12inch subwoofers in the room 2 doors down, then look no further. The propery is in a sketchy area so i guess it would follow that it would attract a raucous group of guests. I literally developed a headache from the incessant bass pounding. Needless to say, i will not be staying an additional night. Lol

Front office staff may be family, or may not but they are not really hospitality based, not positive not professional. No real eye contact, no smile. Definitely not hospitality trained. With that in mind o hope you reserved online. Other than that keep expectations low and you’re good to go.

Both nights of stay on the bottom room. There was mouse all night. I complained, nothing changed. They didn’t clean the room. The fridge didn’t work, the shelf was broken and my kids and I didn’t sleep for two nights. I spent $800 on Father’s Day weekend and it was a terrible hotel experience. I’ll never come here or recommend to anyone

Everything is freshly painted and seemingly new. The man that checked me in was very nice. Room was ready on time. Pillows were comfy, bed is firm. Very clean. Pool is empty was my only negative.

Construction & rude staff

Construction on hotel right outside our door early in morning. Asked to be moved and declined. Then accused of not paying for room when we did through Travelocity website. Was told we'd have police called on us if we didn't prove. Have never ever had a worse experience. Hotel was clean though. Only good thing about it
