"Quiet, clean, comfortable."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
When we arrived, very pleasant and helpful lady at the front desk. We had a room with a King sized bed. Room was clean and very comfortable. Bathroom was roomy and had a great shower. It was quiet. Nice to not hear the people above walking on the floor. Pool area very nice. My granddaughter loved the pool. Breakfast was wonderful. Great food! The only thing that I found difficult was when we were checking out, it was hard to get past the carts of the cleaning ladies in the hall. The carts were huge carrying all of the items to clean the rooms. I also notice that the elevator walls need to be wiped down. Dirty fingerprints and smears everywhere. Not complaining, just noticing. Thank you to your employees who make the place like their own, are proud to work there and try to make a difference. Please appreciate them.

"The staff very unprofessional and very rude."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
We drove for 15 hours for an occasion in town and chose this hotel which we had booked online. The lady on duty at reception on June 6th 2014 in the afternoon was not only very unprofessional in the way she spoke to me in presence of my young children, but she was also very rude. Had I not booked online I would have left. I would not recomend this to anyone travelling with family. Staff needs hospitality training.
