Went there with a group of friends and we got a really good discount. So we got there and the attention was OK. The thing is that the restaurant had run out of several dishes and the rooms where not that comfortable.

My husband and I stayed here Sunday to Monday for the Memorial Day Weekend. We arrived and were informed that our room was not ready. The hotel was extremely chaotic... People coming and going and the staff seemed to be overwhelmed. We decided to hang by the pool until our room was ready. We were disappointed that the pool area... More

Came down with some of my guy friends for a "bro-cation" over Memorial Day weekend. Great hotel for the money! I honestly have no complaints at all.
