Honestly I don't even know how to begin this review. Would I personally stay there again ABSOLUTELY NOT !!!!! My husband and I were here for work and stayed at Ella's for 5 days. The stay was honestly great till the day we left. I had forgotten a bag containing some of my clothes and as soon as I realized it (same day) we contacted the hotel(no one is on-site till early morning) so 1st thing in the morning I drove over to gather my belongings. Unfortunately, 1 of the housekeeping employees had taken that bag. She did NOT follow protocol (turn it into the front desk). Instead she hid the items in the housekeeping room but not before she went through my bag and took what she wanted from it. This girl had broken so many protocols (she never marked the room clean, she didnt tell management the room was ready for inspection, she didn't take items to front desk so they could be returned to us, she hid personal items in a back housekeeping room)that it makes you wonder now who enters your room when your not there and how many people lose items on the regular. Needless to say I feel violated by this girl. She has created a sense of uneasiness within me now that I cannot shake. We travel alot for work and now I look at it all very differently. I know that the whole staff isn't responsible for what happened and I don't blame them at all. It's the common story of it only takes 1 to ruin things. Anyways, I will never see my stuff again (it is what it is) but I don't want this

Property seemed newly renovated, great location and safe/secure. However, there were multiple things that were done so poorly it seemed unsafe. Shower floor was about to cave in, holes in the wall, ceiling dripping and a side door that looked like it was kicked in. Jeffrey the hotel cat was the highlight.

We try to cancel the reservation 3 days prior to arrival and they refused to do it and the reason that I have was that I text positive for the monkeyPox and they charge me one night 520 dollars…

Loved the vibe. It’s quiet, but so close to EVERYTHING. Having a snack shop would really be beneficial, but would definitely stay again!

We had an amazing time. The front desk was so helpful always asking what we needed. Pool area really does look like the pictures! Only issue was lights were controlled by wifi and fan and lights sometimes could'nt be controlled. Jen, Arturo, and Jeremy were all outstanding

This is a quiet, beautiful property. Easy access to everything, and Jefferson the cat is an added bonus.
