I love this hotel. The staff, in general, are courteous and helpful. However, the rooms are outdated and the bathrooms are in need of updating. We recently stayed in Room #922. The carpet was lumpy in places, why we had no idea. The room had a feeling of the 90's, as did the bathroom. A hotel of this rating (5*)...

I stayed at this hotel for 9 nights, the hotel is not the newest and fanciest house in town but they make this up with good service and very good fool. The rooms a spacious and the bed is very comfortable. The pool looks very nice although I did not have time to enjoy it. I would stay there again.
