Staff did not know of any restaurants in the area, and the room was dirty, the toilet was loose and ran all night. Room smelled like smoke. Was not aware of breakfast.

It was nice to have a location near home that will let us spend time with the kids in the pool! It was nice and clean and the pool was big and kid friendly starting at 2ft -5ft for the little ones.
