5.4 Fair
Pros:Staff was pleasant
Cons:There was no WiFi or tv due to recent storm. No cups in the room so I couldn’t even have water. And the rate was not discounted even though services were missing.
5.7 Fair
Pros:The courtyard area with fireplace was a great place to sit for breakfast and the kids absolutely loved the pool area with the water slide. The pool was the main reason we chose the hotel so I was glad that it was clean, fun and delivered excitement for the kids. Staff was friendly and courteous.
Cons:The room stank of mold and mildew, so much that it overpowered us when we first opened the door and I couldn’t sleep because the smell was so strong. Hotel carpets are dirty, everything was run down, poor water pressure in the bathroom, uncomfortable mattress. Basically everything about the room was dingy and dirty.
7.4 Good
Pros:The room was nice and clean and the bed was very comfortable!
Cons:The tv remote would not work unless you were standing right in front of the tv and when we tried to use the buttons on the tv they didn’t work either.
9.7 Wonderful
Pros:Our entire stay was great! Our kiddos enjoyed the pool, and the water was a great temperature. Our room was clean and comfortable. We traveled with friends and were able to call and get an adjoining room. The staff was very friendly. There were many breakfast options.
Cons:It seemed to be a slightly more busy morning for the. Breakfast crew. The amount of options were great but they ran out of a few things and the eggs were very overdone!
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Loved the kitchen/breakfast staff! They were very nice
6.5 Okay
Pros:the pool was awesome, my kids really enjoyed it!
Cons:Our room was a little bit of a struggle. It was just ok, but the really bad issue was there was mold on our bathroom ceiling. I noticed it after we already checked in, so we just tried to avoid the bathroom. I definitely won't be rebooking here because of that.
7.1 Good
Pros:The water park. The hot breakfast. Very convenient.
Cons:The walls were thin. We were woken up in the middle of the night with the cries of a baby in a different room.
6.0 Okay
Cons:Stairwell and hallways dirty with dried mud off of shoes . On the weekends the pool is packed both times I've been there. Coffee Pods and maker doesn't match.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Finding this hotel was a delightful change from the chain hotels in which we normally stay. Everything is spotless, and the facility is beautiful. The pool is great for both adults and children, and the courtyard was a special surprise. The staff was extremely friendly, and found us a great delivery service for a fantastic dinner after a long day on the road. We stayed on our way out, and purposely booked it on the way back on our trip even though it was a bit out of our way - we loved it so much!
Cons:That we couldn't stay longer and enjoy it!
8.0 Very good
Pros:We stayed after a long ride drive. Room was clean, bed was very comfortable. Liked the courtyard. Breakfast was great. Items were hot and kept full. I will definitely check here first for future stays for the price.
