To our surprise there were dishes, blanket, towels, and cookie in the room for our pet. The room was clean and well organized. The beds and pillows were so comfortable. The staff is so friendly...

It's such a great place. I've stayed there many times before. It's had, I think, the warmest swimming pool I've ever swam around in. I could stay at that place for many nights straight. I hope to get a deal sometime for a 2 nights for the price of 1, or a 3 nights for the price of 2, or...
