The hotel was fine. It was a little dated and could use a refresh but the sheets were fresh white and clean. Service was terribly slow but I'm not sure there is really many options that offer the same convenience, view, pool.

Every hotel has at least a continental breakfast. You have to pay at least $8 a piece and then extra for drinks! What a rip off !

Pros: The charming and hospitality
Cons: Would not have changed a thing about our experience and environment...
Location: It is right in the center of the town center with shopping, restaurants, and various venues right outside your door. All within walking distance.
From the entrance outside, to the lobby and the front desk staff, to the room and the housekeeping staff, and onto room service and the restaurant, every thing was very neat, clean, hospitable and above expectations. We travel all over the world most of the time. We stopped here to see friends nearby. We were impressed and will be back. Check this treasure for yourselves, you won't be disappointed.

Cons: Perhaps a better mattress.
The room was very clean and attractive however I found the King size bed just a bit too soft for me. It was very quiet and I heard no one in the early hrs of the morning. Lobby was decorated fo.r Christmas and charming. All in all a pleasant night
