Family of four had a great stay. The facility is due for a light upgrade but we have no complaints overall. Even though the hotel filled up for the weekend, everything was quiet. We’ll remember this vacation for the test of our lives.

  • Disliked: Staff & service

Our bathroom floor flooded whenever we showered. The room keys didn't work most of the time and the front desk staff was rude. The grounds were well cared for and the room was clean.
