    Good location. Plenty of parking. Fitness center was clean and equipment functioned

    Front desk staff were incompetent. Didn't follow through on promised actions (e.g. Moving us to an adjoining room with other family members). Rooms were dark and cramped. Air conditioning was minimally functional in the guest room.

  • 10.0

    The staff called our room to make sure we were happy with our room! And they held clothes that we left behind until we could pick them up!

  • 8.2

    Pillows too hard!

  • 10.0

    The room was very clean, roomy and the bed was awesome. I slept like a baby. The hotel was very safe. The need of a room key for access makes guests feel extra safe.

    I cannot think of a thing that I didn't like.

  • 6.2

    Breakfast buffet at restaurant made me and my family not feel so well afterwards .

    Did not like the chaos at the pool. A lot of the big kids were rough housing and jumping over the little kids. They were unsupervised and unruly. Based on this, i will NOT book this hotel again.
