we loved the pleasant atmosphere of the KOA... Port Charles Beach was fun to walk on (got some nice rounded stones, and a shell or two).... the room was clean and well apportioned.... very good pet amenities (room with vinyl floor, on first floor... plenty of green space to walk, with poop bags conveniently located.... even an generous enclosed dog park (though we didn't find it til just before leaving) was great.... our dog loved walking your beach... especially sniffing at the deer track in the morning!). Your staff were good and friendly, but even with the low traffic, there was a big wait to check in, buy anything from the store, or enjoy the ice cream parlor. You need more staff obviously! My daughter and I even enjoyed your big jump bag.... first time for us both.

We picked to stay here due to the property having a restaurant right near our room so we did not have to drive. When arriving they didn’t inform us of this when we went to check in. Once we checked in we called the front desk to ask the hours and they said it’s not open. We were highly upset because the only reason we spent money was because of that. So we tried to speak to a manager about getting a refund if we checked out the next morning and stayed just one night. I understand things happen but we were never informed of this and it should have been a sign or the front desk should let customers know. The person we spoke to was very rude and didn’t help us one bit speak To a manager and then we we’re told one would call us in the morning that didn’t happen. We also had to hold the toilet seat handle down multiple times to get it to flush. I will not come back to this property.
