Short stay option

We stayed here two nights before moving to our timeshare. Price was good, nothing fancy however it was all we needed for a couple nights..they are in the process of renovating the suites ours was recently done, very clean ,only negative was the bed was hard two nights is about all our backs could take..


No reservation

We arrived to the hotel and staff were not helpful at all,we made a reservation with Orbitz but the hotel told us we did not have one but Orbitz had already charged us,we ended up going to another hotel,we went back to get a paper to certify that we had not stayed there so we could get our money back but it was really hard,after the third time there we got it,staff are a little slow to say the least.

Pros: Nothing

Cons: The staff have not idea how to treat customers
