Systems were down. Poor communication regarding housekeeping hours. No one answered the front desk phones. Room service menus that did not apply or were not in service.

This is a hotel we stay at frequently. It's got great views, a great bar, a lot of snacks in the lobby, and friendly staff. The rooms are comfortable and spacious, and it's a good value.

Clean and friendly environment. We stayed once in 2019 and were happy to find it just as enjoyable as it was back then. The room was comfortable. My kids enjoyed the pool quite a bit - it was very warm, contrary to other recent reviews.

I booked this hotel specifically because it had an indoor pool with long hours of operation. I stayed 2 nights (a Sunday and Monday) specifically so I could spend Monday day relaxing and swimming. However the pool was closed for the ENTIRE day on monday. I understand that things need to be cleaned but it does take 24 hours. Also when i checked in and they told me where the pool was and the hours (which I double checked about) they should have told me it was going to be closed all day monday. Really ruined my trip.
