Fabulous 8.8 From 487 reviews

Fair 4.0
Stuck with the tab for only half the deal
Ordered two separate rooms for one night and got two rooms for two different nights. All family had to pile into one room. We were told that even though no one stayed in the room the prior night, it wouldn't be refunded. We also were that this nights stay would not be cancelled or refunded by the hotel. The staff were condescending and callous towards our situation. We didn't have time to search out another place and were still stuck with paying for the prior nights stay. The staff didn't even wish to speak to us, their patrons, but rather to Hotels site staff. All in all a very poor experience that you can count on will be retold again and again to any who'd hear when asking opinions of the place or its staff or business ethics of their establishment.

Very good 8.0
Very clean rooms, and comfortable bed with big pillows. No restaurant/bar, but within walking distance of several restaurants. The only thing I didn't like was that housekeeping started knocking on my door 45 minutes before checkout, and when I ran down to my car for a minute, they let themselves in and propped the door open, even though I still had bags sitting in the room.

Very good 8.0
We had a few things wrong with the room, like door key worked on & off, shower head had a spray that went straight out the top of shower curtain if you didn’t know to turn it which flooded the floor, A/C wasn’t cooling properly and the hair dryer quit. Everyone was super nice and maintenance had responded quickly. Although the door key quit working completely on our last day.

Exceptional 10.0
My stay was very pleasant. Room was clean and comfortable. Even though it is summer there was enough bedding to stay warm. Couldn’t figure out the air conditioning so just turned the system off. Would like to have an explanation of how to adjust it for us single ladies over 60 😉 would stay here again.

Beautiful walking trail nearby
The late night staff needs better training. Poor lady was all alone and didn't know how to run computer and accidentally deleted our reservations. The day staff was borderline rude and unaccomidating, thank goodness the shuttle driver who politely jumped in, and had an alternative solution for our need for a late check out. The lady rudely said no late check out since you booked through Expedia and not directly with us. Shuttle driver extremely polite and obviously embarrassed for his coworker.
