We got there and it was bad weather, wind was blowing the windows has tape on them I thought they were going to blow off at any moment. The bathroom wasn’t clean, still had nastiness in the toilet. The rain had gotten in and half the room was under water, all they did was give us a couple towels. I don’t see myself coming here again. Just pay a little more for a better hotel.

Hotel staff was great at helping with problems and keeping area, room, and pool very clean. The hotel room itself, even though it is an old hotel, could use some changes. The beds were WAY overused and worn out. Very very uncomfortable. The air conditioner is so loud, we could not hear each other talk unless yelling. The shower was a walk in kind, very very small in the corner. If you are a "big" person, you will not like it. The hot water took forever to heat up. If it was for the staff and cleanliness, I would stay again. But due to the terrible beds and shower/bathroom setup, defintley would not

All I can say I like the other lady when we checked in at 2pm may 8 but the lady that was there in the am on May 9 was a complete racist friend is black and his girl and him have mixed children and when she seen them she was so rude..we usually are allowed to swim all day on check out day but this lady was rude telling us we can't and that the lady that was here yesterday don't know anything and this lady's been there since I stayed at the garage a few years back..but that houndorming lady was so rude she has made me not want to come back.. apparently you can't swim if u checked out but can park ? So unsure of this we've never had issues after checking out until that day she wouldn't make people want to not come id recommend replacing before you lose business! it was that bad !
