    Nice but in need of renovations soon

    Quaint and cool lobby. Extremely friendly and laid back staff, but still very attentive and helpful. Furniture in rooms is getting a bit dated. Mattress in my room was starting to sag and made for sore back in the morning.

    The pool is wonderful. The room was clean and roomy and less than 10 steps from the pool. The staff was friendly and helpful. The overall design and feel of the hotel is warm but elegant.

    Fun place

    The hotel was really nice. Great pool , sauna and hot tub. The kids enjoyed every minute in that pool. The washroom in the room could use a update drain not there if you wanted to take a bath , and just looked old and dirty. Needed to complain about the room service just made the bed and didn’t clean anything up like towels or glasses, but when talked to front desk it was all taken care of. I would go back again with the family

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    It was a great fine. Nice atmosphere when you entered, pleasant, helpful staff at check in and they remembered us when we went out for the evening. Room was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated with comfy beds. Had a quick bite at the on site restaurant which was nicely done up and our waitress was very nice and fun to chat with. We would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

  • 2.0.Poor

    The power went out while we were there. No heat, no Air conditioning no tv no internet no discount. The bloody restaurant was closed so no food as well. $400 for 2 days of that? Expedia owes me a refund. I gave the hotel my concerns they did nothing.

    Good location of the hotel. The view from the room was a brick wall 4 feet away. It was a room that had a door to the adjoining room and you could practically hear everything that was going on in the next room. The washroom floor next to the commode was not cleaned and splash marks of urine.
