Loved the fire pit, although it was late and cold and we didn't use it. Shower was hot, wish the towels were bigger. Please tell staff to circle breakfast area and at least the building the room is in-we got a vague "over there gesture" and drove around to checking out room #'s before we found ours-

Find somewhere else to stay for what you get. Mold on bathroom ceiling. Tub was squishy and felt like you were about to fall through. Sink was missing drain cover. Fruit flies in room before arrival. employee admitted to being embarrassed to work there when notified of issues.

I loved the beautiful park like setting outside my window. The Jacuzzi was wonderful. The room decor seemed a bit severe, no place to sit except on hard metal chairs or the bed. Ill come back though, The price and location make it a great place.
