Rooms were big and beds comfortable. Breakfast was busy with no forks or plates.
Ann marie, us1 night family trip
Poor 2.0
Very poor management.
I feel as if I was discriminated against. The manager treated me as if he was doing me a favor by “allowing me to have my little party as long as I was considerate of his other guest”. I had an all girls sleeper ages 4-9 with about 9 girls and myself. We were very quiet the entire time we were there. I didn’t like that he expected us to be loud. I booked 2 rooms and only stayed in one but reserved 2 just to Avoid any complaints management could have had with the max occupancy of the room being 6. Because of that manager I will NEVER stay at this hotel again. I was extremely upset about how I was approached and had to step away from the birthday girl (my daughter) and guest several times to shed a few tears. I was devistated and he truly did ruin the night for me. I spent over $400 on my 2 rooms so I expected at least good management which I did not get.
