I was pleasantly surprised at the interior courtyard - nice grounds with a duck pond, benches and poolside tables. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. I will return. The room was comfortable and the pillows were outstanding! I actually asked if I could buy one of the pillows because they were so comfortable.

And even tho there were high school teams staying there at the same time, there was no noise. Staff is very professional, courteous and...
