The only reason that I give this car a 4, instead of a 5, is that the room needed some updating. They have replaced the carpet in the hallways and new TV's in the room and I am told that this year they will be doing the rooms. We were checked in by Felix who is an excellent spokesman for...

Stayed here 2 nights for a wedding. Beds were very comfortable and the room was very clean. The hotel is in a 55+ community so not a lot goes on after 9pm. The wall paper in hallway needs to be updated! Shower was amazing! The pool is nice with great water views. Sadly the hot tub was not in service....
