On February 12th, I made a “confirmed” reservation for April 1st, checking out on April 3rd. The confirmed reservation stated $256.50 and when I arrived, it was increased to $300.50! I protested and it took the front desk employee about 20 minutes later to get it to back to the original confirmation. Next, the original confirmation (printed copy) we paid...

Just wanted to get out of the house for a night and Carlton Oaks had availability. Good choice. Nice spacious King room with comfortable bed and dark bronze bathroom fixtures. The sliding bathroom door is a nice touch. Had drinks and a nice dinner in the bar. Overall, most satisfied, though an in-room microwave would have been nice.

The hotel is old and a bit outdated but clean and comfy. Our room was a bit dark with drapes drawn and all the lights on. The staff was friendly, and helpful.

Stayed in room 214 with two double beds because it was the cheapest rate on trip advisor. Room was fairly nice. Clean. Iron and portable ironing board hidden under the refrigerator. No microwave. Personal coffee maker with super weak coffee. Single pane windows facing out on a covered walkway, so you do get a noise from the outside. The walkway...

The rooms were nice just lacking small touches to make it a better place. Towels were cheap and not enough bedding supplies for the large room we had for a family. Plumbing issues in our room with this LOUD sound coming from the wall when the water was turned on. The pool area was great.
