He worked with Groupon and cancelled the second booking even though he didn't have to. He and his staff and Housekeeping Department personnel were extremely professional and courteous...

Great getaway and very relaxing atmosphere. The character of the hotel is what I liked about it the most. Easy to sit in the lounge area and feel relaxed. The pool area was clean and well kept. Felt good to relax and unwind.

This hotel is a little older and the lobby smells like dog shampoo. Front desk was friendly and accommodating when I asked if they could change us from the 2 double beds. Unfortunately our new queen room faced a parking lot and was right by the elevators so a lot of noise from people coming and going. Room smelled (old...
