I liked the lake right behind the property, i thought it was a secluded place. It's right next to a garbage strip mall and the room is dirty. Someone didn't pick up a beer bottle in the balcony, the hot tub had a nail sticking out and cracking wood, and the room next door has a large spider/ web in the door way.

first the picture on the website is deceiving- secondly the ironing board was covered in black mold - set it outside our door - when checking out - staff apologized for the mold and said they would clean the room - i feel they should have comp'd the room or at the very least taken some off the bill - very disapointing and alarming at the same time because this is a health issue breathing in black mold.

The building was somewhat in disrepair, it seemed they were taking steps to improve things. But no breakfast, lobby was not very big or inviting. no pool. rooms were clean and big however.

This place is dirty! The carpet is making our feet black. Go to HomeDepo and rent a carpet cleaner. I've seen fraternity houses with better carpet. Everything in the room feels greasy...walls, furniture, carpet, bathroom.

Hi I want to apologize for failing to meet your expectations. I appreciate you letting me know that there is a problem in the room so I may take care of it. I hope you can give us another opportunity so we may demonstrate that we can and will provide a better experience.

Such a pretty view out the back of the room, with a balcony overhanging the lake. The TV wasn't working when we first got to our room, but someone came to get it working as soon as I asked.
