Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Perfect Vacation"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
A beautiful property right in the middle of everything. The staff was friendly and helpful and the 24 hour coffee machine was great even if the mocha with an extra shot of expresso probably wasn't the best late night choice lol.

"Wonderful Hotel!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I love this hotel. I stay in the older section around the tree and pool. Love the rooms, balcony and birds. By the attention to detail, it is obvious that the management cares about the guests and takes pride in this hotel. I hope the prices stay affordable.

"I wish I knew about you guys sooner, I've enjoyed being able to come home and go to the computer and see lots of hotels asking me to stay with them. (almost like that commercial, when the banks fight over getting your business) Will recommend to others and can't wait to use the service again myself." P.C. - Philadelphia, PA
