Stayed for one night and arrived late whilst travelling the West Coast. Room was clean and comfortable. Based on the short time we were there the room served its purpose and I would stay again if I was visiting that location.

I believe there are maybe at the most 10 units on the whole property. Besides the pool area which is not really big the parking lot would be your only other area to gather.
