"Great staff, but Hotel needs updating"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The staff was very welcoming but as we walked to our rooms, we could smell moisture in the building. The room was fine, beds were comfy but upon staying, we discovered no fan in the bathroom and moisture build up like mold or mildew on the bathroom ceiling. The pool area was closed on Friday night and the Whirlpool was closed off. Very disappointing! The breakfast was excellent with lots of variety, but the Benigan's is seeing its wear and due for a remodel. Overall average is the best rating I can give.
