We stayed in their 2 bedroom cabin. That description is a bit generous... It's really a two room cabin, it was cute and clean tho. Has a small porch with seating. The main room when you walk in is a bedroom with a bunk bed and a futon couch (not very comfy as a couch) plus it is the kitchenette... More

This is the most disgusting hotel I have ever stayed in. I have complained to ABVI saying it should be closed down or taken off their books. The smell of curry and smoke was everywhere - we could not eat there it was that bad, added to this the rooms were disgusting and dirty, the pool was green, the connecting... More

This is an older hotel that could use some maintenance and a good cleaning. Checked in and went to "non-smoking" room that smelled of stale smoke. I was given another room, but it was close to office, where staff were talking loudly late into the night. I would not recommend this hotel.

We had a hard time finding places to stay around this area, and found this place on priceline. It was overpriced for the condition and value. It wasn't best value as they claimed. It looked old and run down. The inside of the room seemed clean enough however, thank goodness. However, it smelled musty and old. The shower did not... More

The cabins worked well for our family of 5. It's a little pricy for the quality. Despite lots of adjusting, Our air con kicked on and off all night which made a good night sleep difficult since it's right above the head of the bed. The soap dispenser was empty and the linens skimpy. The bunk beds were for children... More

Stayed at this hotel a few years ago and it was run down. However, I think it's under new management because the carpet was new, the AC unit was new, the walls were painted. I'd stay here again! I was unable to book online for some unknown reason, but they still honored the online rate when I arrived and told... More

Took a family road trip vacation and this was by far worst hotel we stayed in, despite fact that was most expensive. In desperate need of updating and cleaning. One single pancake thin pillow per person, thin sheets n worn towels, no coffee makers in rooms. Free continental breakfast only from 6-9:00 in extremely cramped quarters with ridiculously weak coffee.... More

We had reserved a cabin for a stay last week, because of the conditions we found we left losing our money for the room and went to much nicer accomodations in town. First the cabins were advertised as new, if you go inside you will see that that is not the case. The bathroom door would not open fully and... More
