We show up and they canceled our reservations and never told us. Apparently they ran my card, I was not even there yet and my bank declined it as frad. They nevee called or emailed. They sold our room to someone else. The whole town was sold out and we had to drive home after our concert. The staff was horrible rude despise me trying to be polite.

The pool was open, but you had to go to the front desk to ask for pool towels, that is if you could find anyone. And then the front deak clerk had her son there each night alone swimming in the pool and he wouldnt leave my family alone! And even though advertised, they had no breakfast.
