There are several problems with this property. It is near an airport so there are frequent loud jets that fly overhead. It is on a busy highway, so there is a lot of traffic noise 24/7. The room was not soundproofed, so this was a negative issue. The other problem was the “Tiki Bar.” Constant cigarette smoke from there; over to pool; which it borders. It has a neighborhood clientele, mostly middle aged and older but really; the neighborhood drunks. With my Grandkids this made use of the pool less enjoyable; there was hardly anyone out there. The staff was very nice, the room itself clean, overall rundown property on outside. I would never stay there again.
