The extra living room area with sofa bed is what keeps us coming back; nothing else. There are more convenient and newer properties, but not with this true "suite" layout. You don't even want to know what disgusting stuff I found in water reservoir of the in-room coffee maker. I'll never us another hotel in-room coffee maker again in my... More

Breakfast was good. They had a good selection, including omelets with onions, cheese, & peppers if you wanted stuffing for them. Bed was ok. Did not like the fact that you had to go through the pool area to get to the fitness area. Pool had TOO MUCH chlorine in it. This is the second pool (in 2 stays) in... More

Nice hotel, but if you are there on a weekend be warned that the traveling youth sports teams and their families stay here frequently. Crowded at breakfast and running, loud smaller siblings in hallway early in AM. Standard breakfast food, which is pretty good at this brand of hotel. Great mexican restaurant- El Rodeo in parking lot.
