          I used VRBO. Also you can go to the front desk and see if there are openings. I think you would get a better deal through vrbo though. Make sure you pay through vrbo.

          I have been reading a LOT of the reviews and they are not very favorable. Is this place really as nasty and dirty as everyone is saying. Is it not being cleaned and sanitized daily? I'm just appalled that if this place is as bad as everyone says, that the Health Department would allow it to say open. I would appreciate an honest reply from the staff at this facility.
