The room smelled like mold upon arrival. The air conditioner was very noisy. We had to ask for clean towels. We came back to room after dinner someone had a bag of trash hanging on the door. I am not sure why I paid for parking to park my own car wherever you can find a parking spot. Smh

This stay was a disaster. No spa. Room smelled like cat pee so we had to move. When we did move only 2 towels in the room and no extra toilet paper. Also our room never got cleaned on Saturday. We came back from being gone most of the afternoon and it was still a mess. At that point we just gave up. No dining or bar during the day. Brkfst was awful tasting. We were overcharged at one point because the staff forgot to let Expedia know we arrived. It took 4 days to get our money back. We won't go back.

We did enjoy our stay however the hotel is in need of some updating. When we first arrived the room smelt very musty. I contacted the staff and they immediately sent someone up to remedy the situation. The wallpaper was peeling off the wall. The carpets were heavily stained. Staff was very friendly. Pool was not equipped to handle all the guest that wanted to use it. There were not enough chairs or towels to accommodate.
