Room was clean and comfortable, especially the bed. Breakfast buffet was way beyond normal fare at chain hotels with chief available for omelettes, etc. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only criticism is the decor, while clean and in good repair it was dated and dull. All colors are brown and beige so rooms are sort of dreary. However,...

It's a perfect place for kids given the pool and game room. The Bar and Restaurant serve hefty portions. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. The best part was...

We were very cordial in not making a big deal, when we found a pair of converse, a toy, and chips on the couch from the guest before us. We had unpacked already so we even asked to just take care of the problem, and we would still stay in the same room. We told Cain about this and notified...
