          Is it safe to walk from the Pavilion to the hotel at night?

          Response from rjaffe2017 | Reviewed this property |
          The Pavilion is a little over 1/2 mile (it's 0.6 miles) from the hotel and it is almost a straight trip. However, it is not a heavily traveled route at night. We walked the area in the evening without feeling threatened.
