We stayed one night but disappointed in the morning with small continental breakfast. The place could have been cleaner & the bathroom needed updating. Rooms were very small.

Water in the shower was scalding (on all settings) and impossible to have a shower. We did receive a small discount after my husband complained because he go burned after stepping into the shower. Should've been a free night.

We arrived to find our reservations were not as promised for our group, thus splitting us up between the two levels. Our room, specifically the bathroom was disgusting, visible mold around and under the bath mat. The pool was GREEN. The parking lot was a sheet of ice, like it had not been cleaned or salted since the last snow.... More
