Do not stay here! We never had maid service come to our room our whole visit, never had clean towels and front desk was rude when we asked for clean towels and maid service! We were also charged TWICE for our stay & when we called the manager after looking at our bank statement when we got back home, she...

We have 4 kids all under age 10. We were looking at rooms right on the beach but saved over $600 for a week staying here. We were not in the room except to sleep and shower. Walmart is across the road, Walgreens is on the corner and also very close to the zoo, Waterville, food and ice cream and...

Bugs in room. Popcorn beside bed. Tiles from wall laying in floor. Food in Fridge. Sink has a toothbrush and other items in sink drain. Outside grass is high. Trash everywhere. Really would be a nice place if staff would take pride in their work. These rooms reflect on you as housekeepers and maintenance. I am a former housekeeper/ inspector/...

Our recent stay at this hotel was a complete disaster. The staff at the front desk was nice and gave us a room, but then the maid jumped in and stated that room had a leak and the AC units was flooding the room and needed repairs, so they gave us another room. We got in the room and there...

The picture that is shown is not what it looks like at all. The front desk seemed to have trouble getting everything together and the two men argued with one another the entire time in front of my mother and I. Our room was one with the two queen beds. It looked clean at first but after walking inside, the...

It was 2 adults & 3 kids. It wasn't bad except they were in the middle of redoing everything. The hot tub doesn't work, we had to ask for towels every day (we had 2 queen size beds but 1 set of towels was all we got), but the staff was very friendly. It was a nice breakfast every morning....

I hate writing bad reviews...but I would like to warn others. This place is pretty on the outside, filthy on the inside. We came in hoping for a relatively cheap room for the night. The front room was nice, and the lady at the desk seemed nice but overly worked. Then we saw the room. My husband was horrified. The...
