"Great Place to Stay!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Very nice, clean, spacious room! We had the king size room and it had a separate living room space with pull out couch. Big bathroom and separate sink/mirror outside of bathroom, perfect for me to get ready while bathroom is occupied. And the pool/hottub/sauna was nice too! Made our stay perfect during my son's wedding, thank you!
