    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

    We had a fantastic view of the small water area with fish and ducks just outside our balcony. The room overall was decent, the rooms desperately need renovation! Walking in the room you get hit with the musty smell and it settles into what Ki remember my grandma’s house smelling like.(I bought some room freshener @ the gift shop). We loved how close this was to the water!
