Enjoyed our stay here with a few minor glitches. First off it is hard to get to if you aren't familiar with highway access road entry only; thought we could access from other roads but it is located in a closed lot; not very convenient to have to drive hwy, exit, get back on hwy to reach. Parking lot was not huge but very adequate, no parking problems at all.
The facility itself is super clean, well maintained with flowering shrubs which always adds to a nice decor. Our check in lady was friendly and very nice, not detaining us at all since we had checked in online. Room was large, bed comfy, pull out also comfy. Wish air conditioner vents had been adjustable as our 9 year old was very cold on the pullout located in front of the a/c. However, the desk provided all the covers we requested to keep her warm.
I had a pair of prescription glasses on the back of the toilet and apparently they were knocked into the trash bin and thrown away; that was disheartening for sure.
The pool room was a nice, clean area; however, the sauna type heat prevented me from enjoying any time there. There was a window that could be opened and the door was usually propped open by swimmers since it was unbearably hot in there.
There was also a large party there who took over the entire lounge/breakfast area, were loud and not very polite, i.e., standing in front of coffee service and not moving. It was so crowded one morning I took what I could grab and went across to sit on the grass instead of dealing with the loudness and crowd. They were even all over the lobby/lounge area drinking in the evening. And don't even think about enjoying the free cookies as they were taken by handfuls when put out and not replenished. Perhaps there should be a meeting room for large groups so they don't over spill into general areas?
Breakfast was varied, hot and plentiful. The breakfast ladies were super friendly and nice, they were a huge plus.
Overall, very clean and a comfortable room stay. Public areas and pool, not so much. And ask for a 4th floor room...after an hour and half of kids (?) jumping on and off beds, running and jumping above us the desk got them to quiet down some. Get on the 4th floor if overhead noise is an issue. Ask for extra towels...king suite, 3 people, 3 towels. I probably won't stay here again.
