Really liked the friendliness of the staff! They were very helpful and accommodating. Our room was very spacious and the beds were extremely comfy! Loved the large swimming pool and hot tub! They also offer room service from the onsite restaurant. The food was really good and reasonably priced. Would recommend this hotel to everyone. We will definitely be back!
