The auto-latching gates are high enough to make it difficult for young children to enter on their own and parents should be attending their children at all times. Because... More

Great hotel and location. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The hotel is beautiful inside, very cozy and inviting. We had "take-out" from the hotel restaurant which we ate by the pool while the kids played. We will definitely stay here any time we come to the Springs.
