Was able to get weekday price for a weekend stay through hotels.com. Staff was very accommodating when I needed adjacent rooms. Rooms were standard but clean. Very comfortable beds. Full breakfast served daily and very good pool area.
This is my second visit to this place. I was there with my family and we all had a great time. Breakfast is decent, Very nice staff and clean rooms. I just suggest they put less chlorine to the pool. It was a little bit too much.
