    Check in was speedy...we had our room key within 2 minutes. Desk clerk was very friendly and let us know multiple times that if we needed anything, to please ask. Breakfast in the morning was super. Lots of choices to eat/drink and area was well kept. The hotel is run very well: clean rooms, efficient staff and nice common areas.

    The check in when went fine we stayed two days at the hotel. We came back on the second day expecting the room to be cleaned and new towels etc it was not. The wife went down and got some new towels to replace the wet ones we had at the room, she asked why they had not cleaned the room was informed that because of covid that they only clean before and after your stay. Later she went back down again to get some coffee (didn’t have any) and some toilet paper. Talk to a different person was informed that we were not put on the list because we were supposed to be told to ask to be cleaned and that the people that checked us in to were to informed us, I don't know that's the stories were right. The room was OK the bathroom had a tile broken that needed replacing and the cove molding was come off some had been nailed back up. The pool and hot tub were Ok for there age, the breakfast was very good.

    OK stay

    We stayed for five nights. Not the cleanest room as we had dried food all over the carpet, in different places - both under the edge of the bed and nightstand, but also out in the main walkway. Also underneath the bathroom sink wasn’t cleaned recently. Also, we had to switch rooms immediately as they put us in a room that they had just recently painted the tub. The fumes were so strong It was actually hard to breathe. No one should have been put in that room for weeks after the tub had been painted, according to what I know about that. They had told me it was just painted before we checked in.

    Room nice and big, comfortable. Only complaint is that the eggs at breakfast tasted funny; both scrambled and hard boiled. Like they had been marinated in vinegar. Otherwise very happy with our stay
