Good Value, that's about it.

The hotel is easy enough to find. Granted we only stayed there one night, mainly due to the price but it was not something to brag about (stay wise). It is an older resort hotel, so we didn't really expect much. Expectations were met very much so, on the not expecting much part. The rooms were as expected, old and dated. Cleanliness was average. Nothing to brag about there. The walls? Paper thin. The couple 'having a good time' next to us was very loud and could hear everything. Thank goodness the kids were asleep. Would not have been fun explaining there 'fun'. Would not stay there again if I had a choice.

Weekend getaway

Room and property clean and comfortable. Breakfast supposed to be served from 6 to 10 am but when we got there at 8 were told all food was gone because cook didn't show up. Overall not bad but a little disappointing.

vacation for fun

This hotel was not my first decision and definitely will not be in my decision next time. It says they have a pool side bar..which they dont even have a bar because its in the restaurant that is being remodeled..the breakfast was hard and cold, not okay!! There is not much to do close. Definitely not the best decision ive made!

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Either get the all day pass for the bus for $6 or taxi ride for 2.50 per mile. If you start at the skyrail its $6 for all day for that and the bus!

Pleasantly surprised!!

We didn't know what to expect due to the huge value!! We stayed in a courtyard facing room near the stairs and didn't have any problems with any noise or foot traffic. The room seems to have been recently remodeled. It was large, clean and the bed was very comfortable. The staff was very nice and room service was quick when called. The outside of the bldg. was decent. Location is very convenient with a variety of places to eat and shop nearby. We would definitely stay here again!!

good stay

Room was clean, but dated. Walls are thin, so if you do not want to hear the kids playing in the room next to you at 6:30 in the morning, I would request a different room.

Nice place

Everything worked out great for me at this hotel. I wish that I had a microwave in the room but other than that I have no complaints at all. The room was clean and comfortable and the complimentary breakfast was a big plus. I would recommend this hotel. Pool and spa were very clean as well.

Disappointing Stay

The pool was very nice, but like the rest of the resort, even the deck was falling apart. In the restaurant, staff good but facility is the worst kept I have ever seen - duct tape holding the seat together! In the room, good amenities, but chairs stained badly. The noise at night was the worst ever experienced. If the ownership invested in maintenance, this would be an excellent resort. Unfortunately, they have let it fall apart.
