8/10 Very good

There was plenty of room in the suite,parking spot convenient infront of door,so easy unloading. The salt water pool was a bonus,lots picnic tables,and shade trees in the back area. The grounds needed some TLC,but no biggy Easy stroll to skaha lake and a beautiful park at the end of the block. Nice to be out of the crazyness of downtown,and yet a few 5-10 min drive to the downtown area. There was a convienence store close by. Great shower and the bed o.k for comfort.The pillows were flat and hard,but we always take our pillows with us,so no problem.
