Hotel has a nice layout for a family of 4. We used the pool, took advantage of free breakfast in the mornings, and close located in a nice neighborhood/shopping district. Rooms could use a little renovation in the bathrooms, but for overall- we didn’t mind. We used the online Children’s Zoo bundle rate- online.
This is an older Homewood, built with the open concept of outdoor entrances with several buildings built around a courtyard. I would say this is not the place to stay in the winter or in inclement weather as you have to go outside to get to the lobby or to another room, plus the pool is outdoors. The complex is clean but is certainly beginning to show its age. Our reception was ho-hum and no one asked if we were Honors members (we are) which meant no welcome bag or extras. On arriving at our room at 6 PM, trash and dirty laundry were still sitting outside. Not a very welcoming sight. Our room was clean (except for the toy sticking out from under a chair, obviously left by the previous occupants. Beds were comfy, AC worked well. Our one complaint was the evening social's menu that wasn't very kid-friendly - spicy gumbo, cheesy broccoli soup, taco chips/salsa/hummus, salad - good for adults but not so much for the 3 younger ones. We were too tired to take them out and made due with some yogurt we had with us and the popcorn that came in the Honors welcome bag that we eventually received. We had an OK stay, just not up to the quality we have experienced at other Homewoods.
