    Worst

    Soon we enter into our room we smell some bad odor coming from bathroom, we thought exhaust fan will take care of that but exhaust fan of bathroom was not workiing, we compained at front dest, the guy acknowledged but said maintenance is not on site today and may take an hr. Or so to reach here. So i requested to move us into another Rm. He did, it has a single king size but we reserved 2 queen size bedroom, with 2 kids the room was too small for us so i went back and ask for replacement and asked if there is no other room available please give us the same room where we were. The guy was polite but said that room is taken already, really in 10 min. The crib given to us was broken as well, so we end up having a worst stay with 2 kids sleeping in one king size bed.

    Good price and location in the area. The air units are just very loud in the rooms. The check in was easy and they gave me my requested room that was very quiet!

    Great for family vacation!

    Staff is friendly. Room and hotel overall is clean. Very nice atmosphere, relaxing. Hotel has 2 great restaurants, Japanese with delicious food, and American style restaurant. Indoor and outdoor pools. Resort territory has a lot of trees with walking paths. Near hotel, 5 minutes away by car, we found a Mall and great Japanese buffet with fresh and delicious food.

    DO NOT STAY

    When we got there, receptionist couldn’t find my reservation. We had to wait about 30 minutes because his computer was slow. While at the front desk, guest were complaining about ac not working, lights going off, and bad smells in their room. We were assigned room 104… the room smell so bad, the bedding was soiled… my family and I ended up sleeping in our cars instead of the room. Hotel is also very noisy and ghetto

    Nice overall

    Really nice staff. They have live music and a deck bar with nice scenery. The indoor pool was a little dirty and faulty smell. But the outdoor pook was nice.

    Fair place to stay for a short stay

    Fast, easy check in. We arrived early and our rooms were ready. We were 3 senior ladies and 1 soon to be senior lady. There were 6 stairs, no elevator, to get to our rooms. Not easy carrying all of our stuff up those stairs. Our rooms were the first two with an adjoining door which was great for us. Rooms are tired. Carpeting should be replaced. Beds were comfy. Bathroom had no towel bars and a very loose toilet seat! Not enough electrical outlets for electronics and coal machines. Had to unplug the clock to use the outlet. Also, I thought I had booked for one price and it was a bit more on my charge and I didn’t realize it until I hit home. My bad for not checking when I checked in.

    Eh-I've stayed in better places.

    PROS: -The staff was very friendly. BUT Seemed to be understaffed. Anytime I went to the desk there was typically only one person answering phones/dealing with customers. But they were quick and efficient. -The rooms were clean. - It was relatively quiet in the tower (except for the couple screaming and tantruming like 2-year-olds during one night). CONS: I was not in the room I was supposed to be in due to their system booking my reservation as two separate reservations. My choices were to switch rooms part way through my stay, be where all the dogs were in the courtyard or be in a room I didn't book. - The water pressure and temp were inconsistent throughout the shower. Once scalding hot came out suddenly and another time freezing cold came out suddenly. - The bathrooms are weird. No place to hang wet towels or anything else. Have to walk across the bathroom while wet to get a towel since no place to put it next to the shower. Hardly any shelf space to place toiletries and can't put them on the sink. - The room set up is odd. There is a desk and chair but where they are situated you are unable to face the TV. And no outlets at the desk so forget using a laptop unless fully charged. Expected a bit more from this place.
