Poor Quality and Service

This hotel did not have good amenities. The pool was like a typical apartment complex pool and the "continental buffer" was poor and only had cereals, muffins and HARD BOILED EGGS. I would not stay here again and do not recommend it to anyone. The whole place smells old and like cigarettes. DO not stay at this hotel.

ITS NOT WORTH WHAT I PAID FOR

Outside look does not look bad but when it comes to the room, the room value is not worth more than 80 dollars and I paid 180 after the hotel fee and tax. Its redicilous.

Getting what you paid for only!

Hotel and pool area were okay. Restaurant was closed for dinner, and the continental breakfast left a lot to be desired. None the less, the location is good, rooms are clean and a nice pool area. For the price, I would stay there again.

Good Enough...

The hotel itself including location is GREAT!!!...Going into the room, is nice, big room, big bed, VERY nice bathroom and TV. The bed itself though needs to go since we could feel the coils. Not the most comfortable. On to the pool, we did go on a holiday weekend and we never imagined there would be so many kids in the pool and jacuzzi, therefore this is not a hotel you want to stay in if you want to be away from kids. The "Deluxe Continental Breakfast" had nothing "Deluxe" about it. Not vegan or vegetarian friendly, carb only bread filled breakfast...Either way, I'd still recommend this hotel for a quick getaway...

Overall okay experience

Older hotel with pretty cool ambiance. Our first room in the west wing was smelly and cold atmosphere. Low grade bathroom. We switched to the east wing and much nicer. Upgraded bathroom and room itself had a better appearance. If your going for the pool side drinks. Way overpriced and not well made. Other then that average hotel. The staff was very nice

Wonderful getaway

This was our second visit in 8 months and again, we were very pleased. No complaints. The various hotel staff members we communicated with were very professional, informative and helpful with our needs. We will definitely return.

vacation

Good value. Would have been good with a fridge in the room. No outdoor dining. Dining room a little dark. Also, food and drinks are quite expensive, go next door (to the hotel next to this one) for fine food and atmosphere. I would recommend this hotel. Big rooms. There are not many restaurants nearby, so you need a car, unless you eat at nearby hotels. nice views of the mountains, good location.

love it...except the MATTRESS!

Great resort. Very relaxing and we loved our stay there...all but fie the most uncomfortable mattress I have ever sleot on. It was so soft it left my entire body in pain and had to power load motrin to be able to move. Will be calling the GM this week to discuss it. There was no one that was on staff Sunday morning to adequately take our complaint. Franks place was a great show. Food was very good , but small portions for the price paid. Cocktails and lunch by the pool was fantastic! Very nice server and as a matter of fact all the serve staff were great. Highly recommend the suites! The tub is a bathaholics dream come true. Overall, we will return but we want a new mattress this time!
